Keyon’s terrific performance caught the attention of the league as he was named SEC Player of the Week. The sophomore from Flint, MI drew nine fouls while committing zero and scored 17 of his 32 in the first half as Arkansas took a seven-point lead at the break. He was the only Razorback to play all 20 minutes of the second half where he scored 15 points thank to making 8-of-9 at the line. Arkansas opens SEC play versus No. 25 Auburn this Saturday, Jan. 6.
