Thompkins makes coaches' all-SEC team

Trey Thompkins may not have had a stupendous junior season, but it was still good enough to make the SEC first-team, according to the league's coaches.

Thompkins, the preseason player of the year, was one of eight members of the coaches' SEC first-team. Thompkins enters this week's league tournament averaging 15.8 points and 7.6 rebounds a game.

The Georgia forward was a unanimous first-team pick last year, when he averaged 17.7 points and 8.3 rebounds. This year the Lithonia product has been hampered by ankle and toe injuries.

Georgia junior Travis Leslie was one of nine members of the coaches' second-team. Leslie, a guard, is averaging 14.3 points and seven rebounds a game.

The SEC doesn't break ties in the coaches' vote, which is why the first and second teams each have more than five members.

The Bulldogs (20-10 overall, 9-7 in the SEC) were shut out of the other individual honors and all-freshman and defensive teams.

Florida head coach Billy Donovan, whose team captured the league title, won SEC coach of the year for the first time. The Gators also had the league player of the year, senior forward Chandler Parsons.

Here's a link to the full list of honorees. The media all-SEC honors are expected to be announced early next week.
