Guard Kira Lewis Jr. was one of eight players named to the league’s All-Freshman team. He finished the regular season averaging 13.9 points per game, 2.9 assists per game and 2.5 rebounds per game. He leads the team in points and assists. He also leads the team in minutes, averaging 31.8 this season.

Lewis is the second-youngest player in Division I basketball and has yet to turn 18 years old. He has scored 20 or more points in five games this season. He is also second on the team with 25 steals and second on the team with 51 made 3-pointers.

Donta Hall was named to the All-Defensive team for the second straight season. The senior forward leads the team with 8.5 rebounds per game and 1.7 blocks. He’s third in the league in rebounding and ninth in blocked shots. He has 13 double-doubles this year to lead the team. Hall averaged 8.9 rebounds in SEC games, best of any player in the league.

Both Hall and Lewis are the only Alabama players to have started every game for the Crimson Tide this season.
