COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Junior forward Chris Silva was named to the SEC Coaches Preseason All-SEC Second Team, the conference office announced on Friday morning ahead of the official start of the 2017-18 campaign. Silva is Carolina’s top returning scorer (10.2), rebounder (6.1) and shot blocker (1.4) and a veteran leader of this year’s squad.

Silva posted 21 double-figure scoring games last season with five double-doubles, including in South Carolina’s Final Four matchup versus Gonzaga when he scored 13 points and pulled down a career-high 13 rebounds. In league play in 2017, Silva averaged 10.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per outing, while hitting 54.7 percent from the field.
