Rod Odom, Damian Jones Earn All-SEC Honors

Behold the All-SEC shooter. - Frederick Breedon

Senior forward Rod Odom earned 2nd-Team All-SEC honors on Tuesday, while center Damian Jones was named to the conference's All-Freshman team.

Vanderbilt's hard-luck season got some good news on Tuesday. Two Commodores earned All-SEC honors for their efforts in 2014.

Senior Rod Odom was named to the All-SEC Second Team, while first-year player Damian Jones got the call to be part of the SEC's All-Freshman squad. The duo were the 30th and 31st players under Kevin Stallings to earn all-conference honors.

Odom has led the Commodores through choppy waters as a senior. The combo forward was tasked with holding down several roles for this team once Vandy was limited to just seven active scholarship players, and he responded in a big way. His averages of 13.6 points and 5.4 rebounds and both career highs, and he turned up as a true leader to key upset wins over Missouri and Tennessee this season. The SEC recognized his tremendous growth as a senior with this second-team honor.

While Odom was this team's present, Jones looks like he'll be the player to lead the 'Dores into the future. The lithe big man averaged 12 points, six rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game after veteran center Josh Henderson went down for the year with a knee injury. The freshman tallied five double-doubles on the year and looks primed to follow in A.J. Ogilvy and Festus Ezeli's footsteps as the next great Vandy big man.
