Georgia Bulldogs

Anthony Edwards is currently projected to go op three to five overall in the 2020 NBA Draft and the second-best NCAA player behind James Wiseman. For the last nine games, he has done 19.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3 assists and 2.2 steals per night. The clear second man for the Bulldogs is Rayshaun Hammonds being the big man of the team with 13.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 steals. Other than that, not much help coming from the role players to back-up Edwards and Hammonds. The definition of the roles has been the Bulldogs’ weakness in their losses and if they want Edwards to shine and live up to his potential, they must step up as well.
