University of Kentucky forward Julius Randle has been named the SEC's freshman of the week for the second time already in his short college basketball career to date. 

The imposing 6"9 Dallas, TX native scored 13 points and registered 11 rebounds against the Texas A&M Aggies, followed up by a 14 point-9 rebound display against Georgia Bulldogs. 

Randle leads the SEC Division in double-doubles this season with 11 of them, all exceptional performances where he has dominated his matchup. 

The power forward is expected to be a top five pick in this years draft if he does declare, and could even put in an argument to be the number one selection overall. 

Randle’s award is the sixth time in 11 weeks this season that the Wildcats have had a player named Freshman of the Week. Other Player of the Week winners from Kentucky this year were James Young on November 25th and December 30th, as well as Aaron Harrison December 2nd and December 23rd.
