Freshman

  • Non-scholarship player who was by far the most valuable of Georgia's many walk-ons.
  • Started eight games in 2004-05 -- seven of which were SEC contests -- in place of three different Bulldogs.
  • Started in place of Stukes in the Vandy game Jan. 22 and scored a season-high 19 points. Nine of those points came in the last five minutes, when the outcome remained unresolved.
  • Played 29 minutes in his first collegiate game, handing out six assists in the Western Kentucky game.
  • Averaged 32 minutes per game over the 2nd half of the SEC schedule, including two 40-minute efforts.
  • Led all Bulldogs in 3-point percentage (36.3%). All but seven of his field-goal attempts have come from 3-point range.
  • Played junior basketball in Australia with Utah sophomore Andrew Bogut, one of the top centers in college basketball and a likely top pick in the 2005 NBA Draft.

  • Non-scholarship player whose status as a true point guard makes him a valuable commodity on this year's team.
  • Coaches regard him as an excellent shooter with great instincts for the game.

    High School (Memorial Day):

  • Coach: Mark Sussman
  • Played one season (2003) as an exchange student for Memorial Day School in Savannah, Ga.
  • Averaged 28.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and and a whopping 12.4 assists per game for Memorial in that one season, setting a single-season school record for most assists (424).
  • Did not play as a senior in 2004 because, according to the Ga. Independent School Assn., his 4-year window of eligibility had expired.
  • Memorial Day won the GISA region title and was state runner-up in 2003.
  • Won three Australian national junior titles (2000-02) as a member of the Victoria Metro program.
