Sixth Man

J. J. Frazier will be off the bench early and often. His go-cart play is not only a change of pace to the bulldozer style of Charles Mann, he allows the Dawgs to use Mann as a shooting guard and Kenny Gaines as a small forward. With Frazier running the team, Coach Fox can challenge opponents with a variety of match up options.

Frazier is the fastest man on the court anytime he is in the game and can create a fast break opportunity any time he has the ball in the backcourt. An excellent floor general Frazier displays  on court wisdom far beyond his years.

Frazier is generously credited with a 5’10” height and 150 pound weight.  An array of inventive weapons allows Frazier to play the role of David opposite Goliath  to the delight of  Stegeman Coliseum crowds.

Frazier only shot 35 percent for the season, but proved several times to be a clutch shooter. The season high point totals for the Glennville, GA native came in the two crucial games leading to Georgia’s appearance in the SEC semi-finals. Several times he lifted the team with his  spark plug play off the bench. If Coach Fox chooses to regularly roll Mann down to the shooting guard spot, Frazier could take as many as 20 minutes of playing time per game.
