Nemanja Djurisic rebounding from slow start

USA TODAY Sports

Nemanja Djurisic has improved his play of late for Georgia.

Georgia forward Nemanja Djurisic has gotten off to a slow start this season, but has improved his play of late, according to Yousef Baig of The Red & Black.

Djurisic is averaging 8.5 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 36.5 percent from the field as a sophomore.

Georgia head coach Mark Fox said that the Djurisic "didn't start off well, and then he lost some confidence."

Djurisic scored just 14 total points while turning the ball over 10 times in the first four games in December. Djurisic broke out of his slump later in the month, when he scored 21 points and grabbed seven rebounds against Florida A&M on Dec. 29.

The slump cost Djurisic his starting position, but he feels that his spot on the bench "was totally deserved" because he didn't make the shots that he feels he's capable of making.

Georgia has won four games in a row to improve to 6-7 on the season heading into conference play.
