Anthony Edwards Named SEC Freshman of the Year

AX2024 is proud to support and acknowledge our fellow Atlanta Xpress family and UGA superstar, Anthony Edwards, on being named the 2020 SEC Freshman of the Year.

According to USA Today affiliate, UGAWire.com - He is UGA’s first player ever to win the award since its creation in 2001.

Edwards came to Georgia as a five-star out of Atlanta with the highest expectations since Dominique Wilkins. And though the team may have had a disappointing season, going 15-16, Edwards put on a show all season.

During his freshman year, Edwards averaged 19.5 points per game. He also averaged 5.3 rebounds and 1.4 steals a game. Edwards posted three 30-point games and had 13 games with 20 points or more.

RIP Kobe & Gianna Bryant

Atlanta Xpress 2024 would like to acknowledge and offer our prayers and condolences to the family of a basketball icon/legend, Mr. Kobe "Mamba" Bryant, and his lovely daughter and fellow 2024 classmate/rising hoops star - Gianna Bryant.

January 26, 2020 is a day that will live on in our hearts and minds as the day the game of basketball and those of us who love, play, coach, and work so hard to master it -- lost two of our most beloved comrades.  So, this year, Atlanta Xpress 2024 will play with the Bryant family in our hearts and minds; as a reminder for us to never take for granted the time and talent we have been given in & through the game of basketball.

RIP BLACK MAMBA and Ms. GIANNA BRYANT
