Wiltjer Named SEC Player of the Week

uk kyleLEXINGTON, KY (11/12/12) – Sophomore Kyle Wiltjer has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week after scoring 19 points and recording six rebounds, three blocks and two assists in a 72-69 victory over Maryland.

Wiltjer led the Wildcats with 19 points on 6-of-9 shooting including a 4-for-6 clip from 3-point range. The four 3-pointers rank as a career high in addition to a career-high three swats. His 19 points are the most since scoring 24 against Loyola on Dec. 22, 2011. He scored 11 first half points to reach double-figures for just the sixth time in his career. He also sunk two free throws in a clutch situation (final three minutes in a six-point game).

The honor is the first in Wiltjer’s career and the first for UK this season.

The Wildcats are in action Tuesday night taking on the Duke Blue Devils in the Champions Classic. Tipoff is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. and the game will be televised live on ESPN.
