The SEC Basketball Coaches Postseason awards have been announced, and it's nearly all Big Orange.
The Tennessee Vols swept Coach of the Year, Player of the Year, and Sixth Man of the Year at the SEC Men's Basketball postseason awards Tuesday.
After leading the men's team to win a share of the 2018 SEC Championship alongside Auburn and a 13-5 record in SEC play, Coach Rick Barnes took home SEC Coach of the Year for Tennessee.
His grandkids gave him the happiest news in the cutest way! Check out this video posted to Tennessee Baseketball's Twitter page:
Sophomore forward Grant Williams was named SEC Player of the Year, and sophomore guard Lamonte Turner was named the SEC Co-Sixth Man of the year alongside Mizzou's Jontay Porter.
Rounding out the haul was junior Admiral Schofield, who was selected as a second-team All-SEC performer. Williams and Schofield were named to the coaches' All-SEC Teams.
The Vols improved their season dramatically from 2017 -- posting 23-regular season wins overall compared to 16 total wins a year ago. To put this in perspective, during preseason the Vols were expected to finish 13th in the 14-team league.
The Vols will play in the SEC Tournament on Friday as the #2 seed, and have secured a spot in the NCAA Tournament later this month.
