Georgia's 88 SEC Academic Honor Roll Recipients Tops in SEC

2015-16 Season:
◊ 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.
◊ 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:

◊ Recipient of the team’s Most Inspirational Award for the season.
◊ Named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll for a second consecutive year.
◊ Logged action in seven outings, including the closing seconds of Georgia’s NCAA Tournament matchup with No. 23 Michigan State.
◊ During the regular season, clocked in for four non-conference games and a pair of SEC contests.
◊ Played a season-best two minutes at South Carolina and grabbed a rebound against the Gamecocks.

2013-14 Season:
◊ Joined the Bulldogs as a walk-on following a stellar two-sport career at Marist.
◊ Named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll for first-year student-athletes.
◊ Saw action in 10 contests – five non-conference dates and five SEC matchups.
◊ Played two minutes and attempted a 3-pointer in Georgia’s season-opening victory over Wofford.
◊ Notched his career high of three minutes played in two contests – vs. Nebraska in the Charleston Classic and against Chattanooga.
◊ Grabbed a rebound in Georgia’s victory at LSU.

Prep Highlights:
◊ A two-sport standout at Marist who was a four-year letterwinner in basketball and a three-year letterwinner in football.
◊ Coached by Greg McClaire in basketball at Marist.
◊ Chosen as captain of the basketball team as a junior and senior.
