LSU forward Ben Simmons was named SEC Freshman of the year by CBS Sports on Monday. He was also named to the CBS All-SEC team:

This was not a unanimous win for Simmons due to the way Kentucky guard Jamal Murray came on down the stretch while the LSU star faltered. But in the end, it's tough to overlook what the 6-9 forward was able to do this season. Heck, he's putting up numbers that nobody has put together in a long time.
Here are the other SEC award winners:
SEC Player of the Year: Tyler Ulis, Kentucky
SEC Coach of the Year: John Calipari, Kentucky
SEC Defensive Player of the Year: Alex Caruso, Texas A&M

CBS Sports All-SEC Team:
Tyler Ulis, Kentucky
Jamal Murray, Kentucky
Stefan Moody, Mississippi
Ben Simmons, LSU
Damian Jones, Vanderbilt
