BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Florida's Billy Donovan is SEC coach of the year and Kentucky's Nerlens Noel is the top freshman and defensive player. The league released the awards and All-SEC teams on Tuesday.

Georgia's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has also been named Southeastern Conference player of the year by league coaches

Caldwell-Pope is the SEC's No. 2 scorer with 18.0 points a game. He's one of only 10 Division I players to score in double figures in every game.

Donovan led the Gators to the regular season SEC title for a fourth time.

Noel blocked 106 shots in 24 games before sustaining a season-ending knee injury on Feb. 12. He averaged 10.5 points and 9.5 rebounds.

Kentucky teammate Kyle Wiltjer is Sixth Man of the Year while Florida's Patric Young earned Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors.
