Caldwell-Pope focusing on SEC, not NBA

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - With the Southeastern Conference tournament foremost in his mind, Georgia's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope says his thoughts are not on turning pro.

At least not right now.

Caldwell-Pope, named by league coaches this week as the SEC player of the year, could play his final college game on Thursday if the Bulldogs (15-16) lose to LSU (18-11) in the second round of tournament.

But Caldwell-Pope says Georgia still believes it can win a couple of games and make the NIT field. He also won't rule out winning the SEC tournament in Nashville, Tenn., to earn the league's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

Georgia coach Mark Fox says Caldwell-Pope has done everything asked of him - leading the team in scoring, rebounds and steals and emerging as the team's most vocal leader.
