SEC 1. Lawrence Roberts, Mississippi State. Once again dominating inside (he's ranked fourth in scoring and third in rebounding). Roberts is shooting a remarkable 52 percent from the floor despite facing consistent double teams. 2. Earnest Shelton, Alabama. You could flip a coin in picking between Shelton and his running mate Kennedy Winston. Shelton's 34-point performance in the rout of Mississippi State and his slight edge over Winston in rebounding make the difference. 3. Chuck Hayes, Kentucky. He hasn't been scoring well this season (12.4 average), but the 6-foot-6 senior is the leading rebounder (8.6) and indisputable anchor on the league's best team. Coach of the year: Mark Gottfried, Alabama. Best freshman: Glen Davis, LSU.
