Marshall Henderson has another first-team snub to help motivate him for the NCAA tournament.
The Associated Press has released its All-SEC team. Henderson has been named newcomer of the year, but he did not make the first team.
Henderson averaged 23.6 points a game and was named MVP of the SEC tournament, leading the Rebels to three wins and the NCAA tournament’s automatic bid with their 66-63 win over Florida on Sunday.
The AP’s first team included player of the year Kentavious Caldwell-Pope of Georgia, Alabama guard Trevor Releford, Tennessee guard Jordan McRae, Florida forward Erik Murphy and Kentucky forward Nerlens Noel.
The second team included LSU forward Johnny O’Bryant, Tennessee forward Jarnell Stokes, guards Phil Pressey of Missouri and Elston Turner of Texas A&M, along with Henderson and Ole Miss forward Murphy Holloway.
