This marks the first time since the current SEC awards format was introduced in 2004 that one team has had three different players honored with league-wide individual awards, and it is just the second time that one school has claimed five of the six major individual awards.

Wilbekin becomes the second Gator to win SEC Player of the Year honors, joining Chandler Parsons (2011). Wilbekin has averaged 12.9 points and 3.9 assists per game while playing a team-high 33.7 minutes.

Young is the first player to three-peat as SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year and brings that award to Gainesville for the sixth time in its 11-year history (Lee Humphrey, 2006 and ’07; Ray Shipman, 2010). It adds to his impressive list of classroom accomplishments that includes Academic All-American recognition this season. He also becomes the second Gator to win SEC Defensive Player of the Year accolades, joining Corey Brewer (co-winner in 2006).

“Any individual honor, to me, is just a reflection on your team,” Donovan said at his weekly press conference on Monday. “Whatever awards are given out or whatever honors are given out to any of our guys, I think they would be the first one to say, ‘Without my teammates, this would not have been possible.’ So if you have a goal, ‘I want to be Player of the Year,’ well, you can't accomplish that by yourself. You have to have other guys to make that happen. I think any individual honor, to me, is always a reflection of the group. Everybody shares in that together.”

“For the guys that don’t leave early or are not afforded the opportunity to leave early, they get better if they are willing to stay the course on the process they have to go through,” Donovan said on Monday. “I just want to create an environment here that whenever they are ready to go, they are going to have our blessing. But if they do stay here, rest assured they will get to be as good as they can possibly be once they leave here.”

      And you keep mistaking me for some ardent Trump fan. Don't know how many times I have to tell you, I voted for Kasich and loved when Mitt Romney tore Trump apart   I am about as far from a protectionist as you will find

      Exactly, he tells you what you want to hear.With no plan to follow.... But he'll reveal it soon...afrer all, its only two months til election..he'll let us know pretty soon, I reckon, what his plan is.... but that wall is the plan, millions of dollars that will be pissed off before construction, then billions to build it and we pay for it.When I say we,i don't include trump because he don't pay taxes.He's a rich welfare baby.... screw that deadbeat bitch...

      Maybe it's been so long since we have seen a candidate with a clue we don't recognize them anymore.  Boarders, Standards (law), and Culture. The fundamental essence of a nation. As it stands the system has all but removed them from this dying once great nation. Nobody respects them anymore. No one want to acknowledge they matter. Hell Trump wasn't my first or second choice but he has the message we need to hear
