Posted by Kurt Wirth on November-18-2009 Add Comments
While Arkansas exploded in its first game, it got brought down to reality by 20th-ranked Louisville. Several other SEC teams have lost already as well. One of those teams included 18th-ranked Mississippi State. The biggest surprise for the conference, however, was a positive one. Rotnei Clarke blew past SEC and Arkansas records on his way to a 13-of-17 performance from downtown to post 51 points against Alcorn State. Here are Week One's awards. PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Rotnei Clarke (33.5 ppg, 2.0 stl, 66.7% 3PT) COACH OF THE WEEK: Trent Johnson (3-0 with win over Western Kentucky) FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK: Marshawn Powell (16.0 ppg, 11.0 rpg, 2.5 blk) A breakdown of each team's performance thus far follows.
