Both UK men's and women's basketball picked up huge early season wins this weekend and on Monday, star players from each team earned Southeastern Conference Player of the week awards.

Terrence Jones helped lead Kentucky to a pair of victories last week over St. John's and No. 5 North Carolina. Jones averaged 20.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.5 blocks and 3.0 steals in the two wins, including a season-high 26-point outing against the Red Storm. The sophomore forward leads UK in scoring this season at 15.0 points per game and is second on the team in rebounding (7.5 per game) and blocks (2.5 per game).

A'dia Mathies paced UK in a 74-54 win over archrival No. 10/11 Louisville and took home Co-SEC Player of the Week honors with Vanderbilt's Christina Foggie. She scored 20 points against the Cardinals to go with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block. The junior guard leads the Wildcats at 16.0 points per game.
