Former Faith Baptist Christian Academy and Glennville native JJ Frazier is one game into his junior basketball career for the University of Georgia.
The Bulldogs began their 2015-16 season Nov. 13 with a narrow 92-90 loss to Chattanooga.
In that contest, Frazier started and played for 34 minutes scoring 22 points, with eight assists and two steals. Frazier drained four treys in the loss, according to stats posted on georgiadogs.com.
Last year, Frazier played in 32 of 33 games. The one game he missed was due to a concussion and fracture of the orbital bone last Valentine’s Day when UGA played Auburn. During his sophomore season, Frazier was a reserve player, but quickly earned a starter role for 13 of the final 19 games.
He finished his sophomore year ranked among the nation’s top 100 players in both free throws percentage and assist-to-turnover ratio, and among SEC players, he ranked fifth.
His career stats for the last two season include 62 games played with 16 starts, a total of 159 rebounds, 131 assists, eight blocks,
52 steals and 415 points.
