OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss senior guard Stefan Moody has been named to the All-SEC first team by the league’s coaches, the conference office announced Tuesday.

It is the second straight first-team nod for the Kissimmee, Florida native and he is the first Rebel since Ansu Sesay in 1997-98 to earn back-to-back first-team honors. The 2016 C Spire Howell Trophy winner, as the best men’s collegiate player in Mississippi, is the 15th All-SEC honoree under head coach Andy Kennedy, which is the third most in the league over the last 10 years trailing only Kentucky and Florida.

The fifth-fastest player in reach 1,000 career points in Ole Miss history, Moody leads the SEC, and ranks ninth nationally, in scoring at 23.1 point per game. He needs only eight points to become only the fifth player in Ole Miss history and the 26th player in SEC history to top 700 points in a season.

Moody was also named to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association All-District IV team for the second-consecutive year the media organization announced Tuesday. Moody is one of ten honorees named to the squad consisting of players the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee.

His 43-point performance against MSU on Senior Night is tied for the highest single-game total in the SEC this year, the 11th highest in nation and the 13th highest in school history. It also marked the most points scored by a Rebel since Gerald Glass dropped 53 on LSU in 1989 and was the most in a league game since Kentucky’s Jodie Meeks scored 45 against Arkansas in 2009.

Moody and the Rebels open SEC Tournament play on Thursday 6 pm against the Alabama.
