Georgia Basketball Preview: Sports Illustrated Says Trey Thompkins Leads A Top-Ten Frontcourt

Georgia comes in at #10 in Sports Illustrated’s top 16 Front Court combinations in the nation. Stars Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie will be joined by Jeremy Price, Chris Barnes, and former Georgia Mr Basketball true Freshman Marcus Thornton.

The pre-season accolades are a strong contrast from Mark Fox’s first season at the helm for Georgia where the Bulldogs had little to no expectations while finishing dead last in the SEC East. In just his second season, Fox now has Georgia on the verge of being a pre-season top 25 team in addition to having a Naismith Player of the Year candidate in Junior Trey Thompkins.
