Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Gamecock basketball player Mindaugas Kacinas snags SEC honors as Freshman of the Week.
The 6'7", 210-pound freshman forward dominated the court over Presbyterian last week, scoring 13 points and getting three rebounds. In the game, the Gamecocks were missing key players; junior guard Bruce Ellington, senior guard LaShay Page and freshman forward Michael Carrera.
Kacinas converted 75 percent of his field goals and all of his rebounds came at the offensive end.
This is the first weekly honor for the freshman forward.
