In addition to winning on the road, there are even more plus sides for Kentucky.
Nerlens Noel received SEC freshman of the week honors averaging 11 points, 9 boards and 6.5 blocks in two wins over Tennesse and Auburn.
Thus completing the list of young Cats to receive the honor this season.
Alex Poythress, Willie Cauley-Stein, who will once again be doubtful for the game with Alabama, and guard Archie Goodwin have now all received the recognition.
Even more promising in Cal's mind...Goodwin played his best game against the Tigers, scoring 12 points in the 22-point rout and that helps the team overall.
