ATLANTA — After a dominating run during the regular season, top-ranked Kentucky made it a clean sweep of the awards on The Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference team.

Freshman forward Anthony Davis was a unanimous choice Monday for player of the year and newcomer of the year, while John Calipari took the coaching honor for the second time in three seasons at Kentucky.

Davis is joined on the first team by another unanimous selection, Vanderbilt junior guard John Jenkins, the only player to repeat from last year's AP All-SEC team. The remainder of the first team includes Kentucky freshman forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and two players from Mississippi State, junior forward Arnett Moultrie and senior guard Dee Bost.

The team was selected by a 12-member media panel.
