AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - Auburn senior Unique Thompson and freshman Romi Levy were honored by the SEC as the league announced its annual awards Tuesday. Thompson was named to the All-SEC Second Team and Levy to the SEC All-Freshman Team.
For the season, Thompson leads the SEC and ranks third in the nation with 12.9 rebounds per game. She also leads Auburn with 17.8 points and 2.4 steals per game. Thompson is the SEC's active career leader in rebounds and steals and is fourth among active players in scoring. She also is one of only two players nationwide to have two games with 20 points and 20 rebounds this year.
Closing out her career at Auburn, Thompson will leave as the program's all-time leader in rebounds, rebounding average and double-doubles. She is in the top 10 in field goal percentage, scoring average and field goals made. In the Tigers’ game at Mississippi State last month, Thompson broke the school rebounding record with her 1,119th rebound. She has 15 double-doubles this season and 57 in her career – tied for 8th most in SEC history.
Thompson has been honored by the SEC’s coaches in three of her four years at Auburn. She was an All-Freshman selection in 2018 and an All-SEC First Team pick in 2020.
Levy, who came to Auburn from Herzliya, Israel, is Auburn's fifth-leading scorer with 5.6 points per game and third-leading rebounder with 4.0 per game. She is also third on the team in assists and steals (1.5 per game in each). Levy became a starter in only her fourth game as an Auburn Tiger.
The All-SEC team and other annual awards were selected by the league's 14 head coaches. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own players.
Auburn will begin postseason play Wednesday as the Tigers face Florida in the first round of the 2021 SEC Tournament. Game time is 3 p.m. CT at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C., being broadcast on SEC Network.
