Koulechov, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound senior guard from Volgograd, Russia, averaged 20.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists in wins over Gardner-Webb, North Florida and New Hampshire. He tied a program record for points in a Gator debut when he tallied 34 in the season opener against Gardner-Webb. In the next two games, Koulechov recorded a double-double (13 pts, 10 rebs; 14 pts, 10 rebs), becoming the first Florida player since Feb. 2016 to record achieve this. At the line, he is shooting a near perfect 12-of-13 (92.3 percent) while shooting the three ball at a 45.0 percent clip (9-of-20).

SEC Freshman of the Week - Alabama's John Petty

Petty, a 6-foot-5, 195-pound guard from Huntsville, Ala., averaged 22 points, five rebounds and two assists in wins over Lipscomb and Alabama A&M. Petty connected on a school record 10 threes (10-of-13) against Alabama A&M. The 10 treys not only set the school mark, but also tied for the fourth-most in a single game in SEC history. His 76.9 percent shooting percentage from beyond the arc was the highest in league history of any player who has made at least 10 threes in a contest.
