Tide’s Mitchell named SEC freshman of week

In the final week of awards, Alabama landed its second representative on the player of the week list. Dominated by players from Kentucky all season, Tony Mitchell slipped his way into the freshman of the week honor by scoring 14.5 points in the Crimson Tide’s two wins.

JaMychal Green was the only other weekly award winner when he was tabbed overall player of the week back on Dec. 28.

Mitchell’s big week started when scoring 11 of his 13 after halftime in the comeback win at South Carolina. He then netted a team-high 16 in Saturday’s win over Auburn.
