Newcomers: Freshman guards DeMario Mayfield and Vincent Williams; redshirt freshman guard Ebuka Anyaorah, who missed all of last season with injury; and senior forward Tyler Whatley, a transfer from Wofford who sat out last season.
Frontcourt at a glance: Thompkins, who played well on the U.S. team that won the Under-19 World Championships in New Zealand during the summer, is Georgia's top returning scorer, rebounder, shot blocker and 3-point shooter. The Dogs need a big season from him. Jackson, the only four-year senior on the roster, looks to finish his UGA career strong. Jeremy Price made the SEC All-Freshman team two years ago but regressed last season. Chris Barnes returned from a knee injury last season and showed promise.
