Jusaun Holt locking down as Georgia basketball faces tall task against No. 23 Auburn

ATHENS — So much of Georgia basketball’s improvement has come from the transfers that coach Mike White quickly collected after his arrival in Athens last March.

Transfer players like Terry Roberts, Matthew-Alexander Moncrieffe, and Frank Anselem have combined to lead UGA (14-7, 4-4 SEC) in all five major statistical categories.

Another such newcomer beginning to flourish is Jusaun Holt, a former four-star talent who transferred from Alabama. The 6-foot-7 guard’s blend of size, quickness and athleticism enable him to defend numerous positions on the floor.

It’s part of the reason Holt earned the first start in SEC play of his career in Georgia’s 81-78 overtime defeat of South Carolina.

His season-highs in points (8) and steals (5) with 6 rebounds against the Gamecocks made a case for him to start again when the Bulldogs tip off at Auburn at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at Neville Arena in Auburn, Alabama (TV: SEC Network).
