This season, Broome has ranked in the top 10 in scoring (16.3 points per game) and rebounding (8.5 per game) in the SEC. He is a candidate for the John R. Wooden, Naismith National Player of the Year and All-America Teams.

He is also the fifth in program history to be named to the All-Defensive Team, joining Quantez Robertson (2009), Anfernee McLemore (2018), Isaac Okoro (2020) and Walker Kessler (2022).

These honors mark the second year in a row that Broome received conference postseason awards. He was named to the 2023 All-SEC Second Team and SEC Academic Honor Roll.

Graduate senior forward Jaylin Williams was named Second-Team All-SEC.

Williams is currently averaging 12.9 points and 4.4 rebound per game in his fifth year with the Tigers. As the school’s all time leader in games played, Williams also ranks 21st all-time on Auburn’s career scoring list with 1,270 points to date.
