Georgia's men's basketball team got off to a rocky start this season, but things have started to turn around of late. The Bulldogs have won three-straight games, and some of the new-found success can be attributed to the development of the youngsters on the team. More specifically, freshmen Brandon Morris and Charles Mann have taken advantage of their increased roles.

Morris has started to see more time at forward and is making a positive impact. The 6"7 wing has scored in double figures in three of the last four games and is shooting nearly 52 percent from the field on the season.

Meanwhile, Mann's strong play has allowed him to wrestle away much of the playing time at point guard from senior Vincent Williams. Mann is averaging just 5.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists on the season, but over the past four games, he has averaged 11.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists.
