Rod Odom Named SEC Basketball Player of the Week

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Rod Odom is your SEC Player of the Week after averaging 24 points per game for the Commodores against Tennessee and Arkansas.

Rod Odom (along with Kyle Fuller) has been the heart and soul of the Vanderbilt Commodores in 2014. On Monday, his hard work was recognized by the SEC, who named him the conference's player of the week.

Odom was coming off a two-game span in which he averaged 24 points, four rebounds, and a block against Tennessee and Arkansas. The senior forward shot a blistering 16-26 from the field - including a 7-14 mark from three-point range - to lead the 'Dores offensively. Vandy went 1-1 last week, upsetting Tennessee but falling to Arkansas late thanks to a game winning three-pointer by Michael Qualls.

This honor is the first of Odom's career. He joins Fuller as the only other Commodore to earn the SEC Player of the Week award on the team's current roster. Odom currently leads Vanderbilt is scoring with 15.2 points per game and is fifth in the conference with a 44.1% three-point shooting percentage. We examined the senior's potential to earn a role in the NBA after he graduates here at AoG earlier this year.
