Georgia freshman Brandon Morris pushing for playing time

After a good performance in a loss to Georgia Tech, UGA freshman Brandon Morris can expect to see the floor more often, says head coach Mark Fox.

Georgia Bulldogs' forward Brandon Morris may have earned himself more playing time with his solid performance in a loss to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Dec. 4, writes Yousef Baig of The Red & Black.

Georgia head coach Mark Fox came away from the 62-54 loss encouraged with his 6'7" freshman, who scored nine points and pulled down four rebounds in 19 minutes of work:

"Brandon has earned a significant amount of more playing time. He's significantly outperformed some of the guys and earned more time, so he'll get that."

The Bulldogs are desperately in need of someone who can spark the team on offense; Georgia ranks No. 333 in the country, averaging just 56.8 points per game. They'll need to improve upon that effort dramatically with the Iona Gaels, who are 31st in the nation in scoring, coming to Athens on Saturday. Morris, who was the No. 39 small forward in the country coming out of Miller Grove High School in Lithonia, Ga., may fit the bill.

The Bulldogs and Gaels will tip off at 5 p.m. ET from Stegeman Coliseum.
