STARKVILLE, Miss. - In LSU's 94-80 win over Mississippi State Wednesday night, Chesapeake's Cam Thomas scored 25 points, breaking the Southeastern Conference's freshman record for 25-plus point games over the past 25 seasons.

Thomas' ten 25-plus point games puts him ahead of the University of Kentucky's Malik Monk , who previously set the record during the 2016-17 season.

After Wednesday's performance, Thomas was then named to Thursday's 2021 Midseason Team for Naismith Men's Player of the Year. The list will be reduced to ten finalists on March 4, then four on March 16, before the winner is finally announced on April 4.
