Three Vols were on the list when the SEC announced their post-season awards on Tuesday.

Jordan McRae and Jarnell Stokes claimed first-team All-SEC honors and Josh Richardson landed on the SEC All-Defensive Team. Tennessee and Florida were the only team's with multiple players on the All-SEC first-team.

McRae earned first-team honors last year as well. He's the 26th Vol to claim that distinction. The senior is 19th on UT's all-time scoring chart, with 1,413 points so far. He's averaging 18.8 points and shooting a career-best .376 from 3-point range this season.

Stokes averaged a double-double in SEC play with 15.1 points and 11.1 rebounds per game. He was on the All-SEC second-team last season as a sophomore. Stokes has posted a career-best 18 double-doubles (and counting) as a junior, and his 36 career double-doubles are the fourth-most in Tennessee history. Stokes has already surpassed the 1000 career points milestone as a junior, with 1,022 so far.

UT calls Richardson "one of America's most relentless defenders." He usually draws the assignment of guarding the opponents' top perimeter scorer. The junior led the Vols in steals in SEC play (16) while trailing only Stokes in blocks.
