 LSU super senior KJ Williams was named second team All-SEC Monday on the Southeastern Conference awards announced after voting by the league’s 14 coaches.

Williams is No. 2 in the SEC in scoring at 17.4 points per game and is also in the top 10 in rebound average at 7.6 boards a game. In the last five games of the season, he is averaging 24.2 points and 8.8 rebounds a game.

Williams, from Cleveland, Mississippi, during the season scored both his 2,000th career point and had his 1,000th rebound, making him only the eighth player in league history to have played in the league as part of a 2,000-1,000 campaign.

He posted eight double doubles this season and is third in the league among active players with 35 career doubles.

Williams and the Tigers travel to Nashville for a game against Georgia in the first round of the SEC Tournament at Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday. Game time is set for 25 minutes after the first game of the evening session concludes or approximately 8:20 p.m.

The game will be broadcast on the affiliates of the LSU Sports Radio Network (98.1-FM) and televised on the SEC Network.
