Rebounding: B+

Georgia’s rebounding margin is plus 5.3 per game, claiming a little over 39 rebounds in 40 minutes. We’ll also grade rebounding  on the curve.

Georgia ranks above 80% of D1 schools in rebound margin – B.

Georgia also claims more rebounds than 97% of D1 teams – A.

Georgia also defeated 3 of the 5 teams ranked higher in rebounding margin; give the Dawgs some extra-credit.

Marcus Thornton is Georgia’s rebounding horse with a shade over seven rebounds per game. But no Bulldog dominates the glass and each team member has accepted rebounding as a primary responsibility; give the Dawgs a little more extra-credit.

Despite a philosophy that limits offensive rebounds to protect against the fast break, Georgia rebounds well.
