Auburn forward Kenny Gabriel shared SEC Player of the Week honors, the conference announced Monday.
Gabriel, a 6-foot-8 forward from Charlotte, N.C., averaged 20.0 points and 9.0 rebounds in Auburn's wins against Ole Miss and LSU last week.
He shared the award with Mississippi State's Ravern Johnson.
Gabriel, a junior, scored a career-high 24 points against Ole Miss to help the Tigers erase a 20-point deficit. He got his first career double-double against an SEC team at LSU, finishing with 16 points and 11 rebounds.
Never miss a local story.
He is the first Auburn player to be named SEC Player of the Week since March 9, 2009, when Korvotney Barber took the honor.
