Alabama’s Jordan Lewis was selected as the Southeastern Conference Newcomer of the Year by the Associated Press, which was announced on Wednesday. She is the first freshman from Alabama to earn the award since its inception in 1997.

Lewis, a 5-7 point guard from Windermere, Fla., has started every game for the Crimson Tide, leading the team in assists with an average of 4.1 per game. She plays an average of 32.4 minutes per contest, the most of any freshman in the league, and is the only rookie in the SEC ranked in the top 10 in assists coming in at No. 5. She also contributes 9.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals per outing.

Lewis has helped the Crimson Tide to 19 overall wins for the first time since the 2001-02 season. Along the way, she’s scored double-digit points 19 times, including a season-high 22 on the road at Ole Miss. She’s collected five or more assists on 11 occasions and dished out a season-best eight assists in the win over Georgia Tech and in both victories against Tennessee. She’s led Alabama in assists 24 times, steals eight times, scoring four times and rebounding three times.

In addition to being named the AP SEC Newcomer of the Year, Lewis also earned SEC All-Freshman Team accolades from the league coaches and was SEC Freshman of the Week five times.
