"I don't know how you could reach a different conclusion on Freshman of the Year than Bria Goss. And for that matter, I don't know how you could reach a different conclusion on Player of the Year with A'dia Mathies."

That's what Kentucky head coach Matthew Mitchell said before Wednesday morning's announcement of the Southeastern Conference award winners.

He was proven right.

Mathies took home top honors as the conference's Player of the Year, Goss was the Freshman of the Year and Keyla Snowden shared the Sixth Woman of the Year award with Deana Allen of Florida. Mathies was also voted to the All-SEC first team by the league's coaches, as well as the All-Defensive team. Goss is a member of the All-Freshman team.

The one major individual award the Wildcats did not take home was Coach of the Year, which Mitchell jokingly foretold.

"Let me tell you something," Mitchell said. "You don't live inside this brain. You could find plenty of reasons to come to a different conclusion on Coach of the Year (than Mitchell winning), trust me. Thank God for A'dia Mathies and Bria Goss."

Tom Collen of Arkansas was named Coach of the Year.
