◊ Grabbed seven boards, dished out four assists and scored on an alley-oop late in a win over Mississippi State in Starkville, doing so with a slew of family and friends in attendance.
◊ Equaled his career high with eight boards versus the Bulldogs in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament on March 10.

2014-15 Season Highlights:

◊ Returned to action Feb. 17 vs. South Carolina and contributed a career-best six rebounds in just 12 minutes.
◊ Played the remainder of the season with a protective wrap around his wrist.
◊ Earned first career start at the `3’ position on Feb. 21 at Alabama and remained in the lineup for six of the Bulldogs’ final eight games of the season, including both of UGA’s SEC Tournament outings.
◊ Scored a season- and career-high seven points against Missouri on Feb. 28.

◊ Garnered his first double-figure minutes against Chattanooga, scoring four points and grabbed three boards in 10 MP.

◊ Posted season-high efforts for points (six) and minutes played (14) versus the SEC West’s Bulldogs in Starkville.

◊ Scored eight points, grabbed seven rebounds and swatted four shots in the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Basketball game.
◊ Also named 2013 Player of the Year by the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.
