A.J. Ogilvy makes underclassman All-SEC — and Jeffrey Taylor among top frosh

A.J. Ogilvy’s been named second-team All-SEC as voted on by the coaches. But he’s one of the top four underclassmen in the SEC.

Know how college basketball is supposedly a young man’s game in which the best players — and next year’s top draft picks — are freshmen and maybe sophomores?

Not in the SEC, at least according to the coaches. Here’s a breakdown of the 18 players voted to the first two teams, by class:

1-Marcus Thornton, LSU
2-Alonzo Gee, Alabama
2-Korvotney Barber, Auburn
2-Garrett Temple, LSU
2-Zam Fredrick, South Carolina

1-Jodie Meeks, Kentucky
1-Tasmin Mitchell, LSU
1- Jarvis Varnado, Miss State
1-Devan Downey, South Carolina
1-Tyler Smith, Tennessee
2-Michael Washington, Arkansas
2-David Huertas, Ole Miss
2-Dominique Archie, South Carolina
2-Wayne Chism, Tennessee

1-Nick Calathes, Florida
1-Patrick Patterson, Kentucky
2-A.J. Ogilvy, Vanderbilt

2-Terrico White, Ole Miss

Speaking of freshmen, Jeffery Taylor made the All-Freshman team.

Congratulations, guys.
