Improvement, Growth: A-

Georgia began the season a disappointing 3 – 3 including a skunking in two tries in Madison Square Garden, the collegiate basketball Mecca. However, the Dawgs have found a rhythm and enthusiasm since and have won three straight, including games against good Colorado and Seton Hall teams.

Point guard play, thanks to J. J. Frazier, is a huge factor in the turnaround. The diminutive field general is shooting 55% from the field with a 2.25/1 assist to turnover ratio, not to mention claiming over almost five rebounds per game in the last three games. Also, Marcus Thornton has played his best ball in the last three games, shooting 65% from the field and scoring over 17 points per game. And as a team, it appears Georgia may have lost the old poor opening minutes bugaboo.
