2010-11 Season

• 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.

High School
• Named the Class AAAA Player of the Year by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2008.
• Averaged 21.3 points and 9.0 rebounds and four assists per game last season for Columbia, which won the 2008 Georgia state 4A title, its second in three years.
