University of Tennessee men’s basketball coach Cuonzo Martin is campaigning on behalf of former Liberty County High School basketball player Jordan McRae to be named the Southeastern Conference player of the year.
“If I had a vote,” Martin said on timesfreepress.com, “I’d vote Jordan ... and it’s not just because he’s my guy.”
According to the article, the 6-foot-5 junior wing had a career-high 35 points in the Vols’ loss at Georgia and scored 27 points against league-leading Florida in Tennessee’s win last week. McRae has averaged 26.8 points and six rebounds in his past five games as of Thursday.
In the past four games, he shot 53 percent and made 20 3-pointers, including 8 of 11 attempts Saturday.
As of Thursday, the Vols were 18-11 overall and 10-7 in the SEC, according to espn.com.
