2003-04 Season
? A reserve for much of his two years at Georgia, he?s held down first-team status this season since the second game.
? This last collegiate season is his first-ever away from identical twin brother Jarvis, a 1st-round NBA draft pick of the Washington Wizards last June.
? The hero of Georgia?s win over Georgia Tech on Jan. 3. Four of his career-high 25 points came in the second overtime period. Named SEC Player of the Week for this performance.
? Scored a then-career-high 20 points in two of the season?s first three games. It matched his freshman-year performance of 20 while playing for Western Carolina.
? A lone offensive bright spot in loss to Pittsburgh, sinking his first five shots en route to a team-high 16 points.
? Missed over half of pre-season practice with a high ankle sprain. Recovered in time to contribute 27 minutes off the bench in the season opener vs. Western Carolina.
? Swished an 84-foot shot at the end of the LSU game, a bucket that officials disallowed without consulting a TV replay.

2002-03 Season
? A 5-game starter at center who played admirably despite being undersized in almost every contest.
? The hero of Georgia?s win at Colorado, when he saved an errant pass and banked in a 30-foot trey with 0.2 seconds left. It was his first-ever 3-point shot attempt in a collegiate game.
? Followed up the miracle in Colorado with his best game of the season, getting 16 points and six boards in a career-high 41 minutes vs. Cal.
? Selected in January as Georgia?s representative on the SEC ?Good Works? team. One of his acts of goodwill: an appearance as Santa Claus for kindergarteners at 4th Street Elementary School in Athens.
2001-02 Season
? Thrust into a starter's role in the absence of Steve Thomas on two separate occasions.
? Led the team in FG percentage at 55.5%. Also one of the most efficient members of the team, averaging a rebound every 4.1 minute of court time, second-best behind Daniels.
? Best offensive game of '02 was a 17-point (13 in the 2nd half), 6-rebound effort vs. Colorado.
? Played key roles in several SEC contests, most notably his 13-point games in wins at Kentucky and Florida.
? In his first starting assignment, he posted a double-double (14 pts., 14 rebs.) in loss to Alabama.
? Got identical numbers in Georgia's NCAA Tournament win over Murray State.

2000-01 Season

1999-2000 Season (Western Carolina)
