Believe it or not, the Kentucky Wildcats now have their first ever AP Player of the Year: Anthony Davis.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis is The Associated Press'
college basketball Player of the Year, the first Kentucky player
and second freshman to win the award.
      He received 43 votes Friday from the 65-member national media
panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Balloting was done before the
NCAA tournament.
      The 6-foot-10 player from Chicago is the Southeastern
Conference's Player, Freshman and Defensive Player of the Year. He
averaged 14.3 points, 10.0 rebounds and 4.6 blocks while shooting
64.2 percent. His block total is a school record and third best for
a freshman.
      Kevin Durant of Texas in 2007 is the only other freshman to win
the award.
      Thomas Robinson of Kansas was second with 20 votes, and Draymond
Green of Michigan State received the other two votes.
      Jimmer Fredette of BYU won the award last season.
