Columbia, South Carolina – Junior Guard AJ Lawson of the University of South Carolina has been nominated for the first team, and second-year guard Germain Quisnard has won the honor of the second team. The SEC released the 17th Annual Coach Preseason All-SEC Team on Thursday. While Lawson received the same praise last season, it marks the first pre-season honor of Quisnard’s career from the coach.
Couisnard led the gamecock with 14.8 points per game on his way to the post-season All Freshman team honor from his coach in last season’s SEC contest. Throughout the last season, he averaged 12.1 points, the team’s best 3.2 assists, and just under one steal per game. Couisnard played 18 double figure scoring games during the rookie campaign. This includes a career-leading 28-point performance at Ole Miss in early February. His 18 games with more than 3 assists were the best of the team, he recorded the first buzzer beater of his college career, hit the last second 3 and was No. 10/12 Kentucky in SEC action. I won at home.
Lawson, who won the pre-season All-SEC Second Team honor from the media last week, played 23 double-digit scoring games last season, including six 20-point outings. He played 10 games with three or more assists, averaging 1.9 per game. Lawson is only 196 points away from reaching 1,000 in his career and has matched his career height with eight field goals five times last season. In the league match, 13 double figure scoring games were played with an average of 11.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists. His best performance at SEC action last season was Carolina’s Roadwin in Georgia. He scored 20 behind 7 make-ups from the field and gave 2 assists with 3 steals.
