◊ The honor is presented to the male and female UGA student-athletes with the highest grade point average upon entering the fall semester of his or her senior year, based upon academic hours rather than eligibility. Additionally, a student-athlete must have earned at least two varsity letters to be eligible for the award.
◊ Eaves was the Director of Athletics at UGA from 1963-79, and the award was established with the aim of acknowledging the contributions he made during his tenure while also highlighting the academic achievements of current student-athletes.
2015-16 Season Highlights:
◊ Named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court, an honor bestowed upon juniors and seniors with a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 or higher.
◊ One of only four SEC players and the only player from a Division I school in the state of Georgia to be included on the Honors Court for the 2015-16 campaign.
◊ Named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll for the third straight year.
◊ Earned playing time in six games, including three SEC regular-season outings.
◊ Provided a highlight for the team before the season began when Mark Fox announced during the team’s pre-season banquet on Nov. 3 that he was being awarded with a scholarship.
◊ Said Mark Fox when awarding him a scholarship: “Brandon grew up in a family that loves the University of Georgia. He grew up – much like Houston (Kessler) – bleeding Red and Black. But what I love about ‘B.Y.’ – and I think our players would say the same thing – is that Brandon Young epitomizes everything that a Georgia Bulldog should be. He’s a great student. He’s a wonderful person. He is a terrific player. He is the best teammate – would everyone agree? – the best teammate on this team. Because of all that, ‘B.Y.,’ I think we should give you a scholarship tonight.” Young was subsequently mobbed by his teammates.
◊ Checked in for the first time during the waning moments of the Georgia Tech game on Dec. 19.
◊ Probably couldn’t have written a better script to his first career point as a Bulldog. The Atlanta native from a multi-generation UGA family made a free throw with 12.2 seconds left against arch-rival Yellow Jackets.
◊ Unselfishly resisted a shot and dished to a teammate for a basket – the first assist of his career – in the closing minutes of a Dec. 29 victory over Robert Morris.
◊ Missed a seventh “GP” at LSU on Jan. 26 in an odd circumstance. Checked into the contest but then left the floor when a foul was committed before the ball was inbounded.
2014-15 Season Highlights:
◊ Recipient of the team’s Most Inspirational Award for the 2014-15 campaign.
◊ Named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll.
◊ Logged action in seven outings, including the closing seconds of Georgia’s NCAA Tournament matchup with No. 23 Michigan State.
◊ Clocked in for four non-conference games and a pair of SEC contests during the regular season.
◊ Played a season-best two minutes at South Carolina and grabbed a rebound against the Gamecocks.
