Missouri senior Kassius Robertson and freshman Jontay Porter received honors from the Southeastern Conference and The Associated Press for their performances this season.

Robertson, Missouri's leading scorer at 16.5 points per game, is one of the league's most prolific shooters. Robertson came to Missouri this year from Canisius known as a shooter and lived up to that billing. He shot 42.8 percent from 3-point range, which ranks third in the SEC. Because of his scoring ability, Robertson earned first-team All-SEC honors from the coaches and second-team All-SEC honors from The Associated Press.

Porter, who skipped his senior year of high school to play at Missouri, was named to the all-freshman team and earned co-sixth man of the year honors along with Tennessee's Lamonte Turner. Porter, who started just six of 31 games this season, averaged 9.8 points and 6.8 rebounds and led the team with 53 blocks.

Missouri will open the SEC Tournament at 2 p.m. Thursday against the winner of the first-round game between Georgia and Vanderbilt.

Georgia's Yante Maten was named the player of the year by The Associated Press. Tennessee's Rick Barnes was coach of the year by the SEC and the AP, while the Vols' Grant Williams was named player of the year by the SEC coaches.

Other SEC awards by the coaches include: co-freshmen of the year going to Alabama's Collin Sexton and Kentucky's Kevin Knox; co-defensive player of the year went to South Carolina's Chris Silva and Texas A&M's Robert Williams. The AP newcomer of the year honors also went to Sexton.
