Florida's Dorian Finney-Smith was named to the 2016 All-SEC Second Team on Tuesday, the league announced, with Gators freshman KeVaughn Allen making the conference's All-Freshman team.

For Finney-Smith, it's a second consecutive appearance on the All-SEC Second Team, after being named the conference's Sixth Man of the Year for his role on Florida's senior-laden 2013-14 squad. The senior and Virginia Tech transfer leads Florida in scoring (14.9 points per game) and rebounding (8.2 rebounds per game), while also shooting 38.7 percent from three-point range. And while he's petered out a bit of late, Finney-Smith had a stretch of five 20-point performances over six contests that spanned the end of January and beginning of February.

Allen, too, has struggled as Florida's season has come to a close, but his 11.5 points per game leaves him only fractionally behind John Egbunu — Egbunu has scored 358 points to Allen's 355 this season — as the Gators' third-leading scorer. Allen had explosive nights of 32 points against Florida State and 27 against Mississippi, but has not scored 20 points since that January visit to Oxford, and only scored in double figures once over the Gators' recent four-game losing streak.
