LSU point guard Tremont Waters was named SEC Freshman of the Week by the league office on Monday for his outstanding performance vs. Alcorn State in the season opener. Per

Waters is the second straight LSU player to win one of the league awards on the opening weekend of the season. Then junior Duop Reath won Player of the Week for his first game of his LSU career in Nov. 2016.

Waters, from New Haven, Connecticut, scored 27 points with four treys during the 99-59 win over the Braves. Waters had six assists, five rebounds and five steals.

The 27 points was the third highest scoring game by a freshman in Division I on either Friday or Saturday topped only by the 32 of Jaylen Nowell and the 28 of Cameron Bacote of Maryland Eastern Shore.
