SEC Basketball: Top Small Forwards in the Conference

The SEC isn’t really known for its small forwards, due to all of the dominant power forwards in the conference (at least for this season), but it will still feature some pretty impressive players at this position in the 2012-13 college basketball season.

Take a look at the top three small forwards in SEC basketball.

3. Jeronne Maymon, Tennessee-Maymon had a breakout season last year, with 12.7 points per game and 8.1 rebounds per game. However, Maymon really picked up his game midseason, but that is pretty much the case for the entire Tennessee team last year. Maymon will only be a senior in the upcoming season and he has the talent to become one of the best players in the SEC.

2. Ray Turner, Texas A&M-With the addition of Texas A&M to the SEC, the conference will also get an amazing player in Ray Turner. Turner only averaged 9.3 points per game last year, but that is because he only played 21.9 minutes per game. Even so, he is still easily one of the best small forwards in the SEC.

1. Alex Poythress, Kentucky-Poythress has not played a single minute yet in college, but he has the talent to be one of the best players in the nation this season. That is because he can drain threes and he has an inside game, which makes him near impossible to stop. Not to mention, he rebounds well, is a good ball-handler and he can pass. Poythress has the whole package and he will be the best small forward in the conference this year.
