All-Southeastern Conference 2nd team, as selected by the league's 12 head coaches.
Was also a pre-season All-SEC selection by the SEC coaches and AP.
Has compiled six double-doubles this season, including both SEC Tournament games.
Had been the Bulldogs' scoring and rebounding leader until Thompkins' return to health.
In the Florida game on 2/24, he became the 41st player in UGA history to score 1,000 career points.
Was recently tabbed as the best dunker in college basketball by a panel of voters on ESPN's College Gameday show.
2009-10 Season It could be argued that Leslie was the SEC's most improved player in 2010. Rivals.com, in fact, annointed him with the honor at season's end. The Bulldogs' 2nd-leading scorer and rebounder throughout the season. Named SEC Player of the Week on Jan. 24. Became a primary offensive weapon for Georgia, having needed just 13 games to surpass his entire scoring total from 2009. Led Georgia in offensive rebounding, as well as assists during SEC games. Scored in double figures 26 times, over 20 five times. His 17 rebounds in a loss at Auburn were the most by a Georgia player in nine years. Had a team-high 36 dunks during the season. Five of his plays -- four dunks and a blocked shot -- found their way onto ESPN's Top 10 Plays of the Day. Changed his jersey number from 22 as a freshman to 1 for his sophomore year, symbolic of a fresh start.
2008-09 Season Occasionally showed flashes of his brilliant athleticism on the court. Scored his career high of 23 points in season's second game, a neutral-court loss to Loyola-Chicago. Hit for double figures four other times, including a 19-point effort against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Likely the team's best-rebounding backcourt player. Thirty-nine percent of his boards were offensive, the highest percentage of any Georgia guard. Started four holiday games in place of injured senior Terrance Woodbury. Missed the last five games in order to concentrate on his academic work. Had created a valuable niche for himself during early-season play. Playing time, however, diminished in the SEC season's latter half.

Most People Don't Know this About Me I sing in the shower. I Chose to Wear #1 Because I changed numbers (from 22) because I wasn't satisfied with my performance last year, so I think of it as a new beginning for me.
