The SEC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Leadership Council will hold its annual meeting today, and two Kentucky Basketball veterans will represent the Cats. Junior Keion Brooks and senior Blair Green are on the council for the second year in a row. This year, the meeting will be held virtually.

The council consists of one male representative and one female representative from each of the SEC’s 14 institutions. The group aims to be a conduit of communication from their teams to the conference office on issues related to student-athlete experience, student-athlete wellness, and to provide feedback on proposed rules governing the SEC and NCAA.

Last season, Brooks and Green also served on the SEC’s Council on Racial Equity and Social Justice, helping identify resources, outline strategies, and assist with implementation of efforts that will promote racial equity and social justice, while also fostering diversity, helping overcome racism and pursuing non-discrimination in intercollegiate athletics. Brooks was also one of 11 players on the National Association of Basketball Coaches Player Development Coalition, providing the NABC with valuable perspective and feedback on college basketball-related issues. He is a member of Kentucky’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and a team captain.  

Green is a three-year member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll. Last year, she and the rest of the women’s team were named to the SEC Community Service Team. Green also helped lead a social justice march and unity fair through Kentucky’s campus.
