Georgia coach Mark Fox has been really impressed with Ole Miss junior college transfer shooting guard Stefan Moody.
The Rebels play Tuesday night at 6 against Georgia.
“He really is a special player. He’s shot the 3 at an extreme clip. He’s extremely athletic. Everyone in this league was excited when Marshall Henderson left. You felt they couldn’t get a guy who shoots as well as him, but lo and behold they’ve done it and added athleticism to that position. He’s a tough matchup. They’ve not missed a beat there. He’s such a good shooter, and he’s so tough off the bounce, and he’s surrounded by good players.”
Moody has hit at least two 3-pointers in seven straight games and is shooting 39.2 percent from the arc for the season.
He was 2-for-3 at Arkansas, the fewest 3-pointers he’s attempted since going 1-for-2 against Southern University on Nov. 20.
In the most recent release of statistics, Georgia is fourth in the league in 3-point defense with opponents shooting 30.1 percent.
