Florida may not be where it wants to be as a team, but the Gators' individual parts are, at times, spectacular. That's why it's no surprise that Bradley Beal and Kenny Boynton have been named to the 2012 All-SEC First Team, as the SEC announced Tuesday.

Beal and Boynton are the first Florida teammates to be named first-teamers since Joakim Noah, Al Horford, and Corey Brewer all made the first team in 2007, and Beal was also named to the SEC's All-Freshman team, becoming the first Gator to ever accomplish that feat.

Erving Walker was named to the All-SEC Second Team, joining Udonis Haslem as only the second Florida player to earn All-SEC honors in three consecutive years.

Florida's two All-SEC First Team selections ties the Gators with Kentucky (Andthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist), Vanderbilt (John Jenkins, Jeffrey Taylor), and Mississippi State (Dee Bost, Arnett Moultrie) in that category, and the Gators' three players on the First and Second Teams is second only to Kentucky's four.

The Wildcats led the conference with a staggering 13 total honors, and swept all but one of the major awards, with Anthony Davis earning the rare trifecta of SEC Player, Freshman, and Defensive Player of the Year. The one UK didn't get? SEC Scholar-Athlete, which went to Patric Young, a telecommunications major with a 3.37 GPA.

Additionally, Will Yeguete was honored by the conference on Monday when he was named to the SEC's Community Service team.

Makes you proud, doesn't it?
