As the Bulldogs prepare to take on Florida, UGA men’s graduate transfer Donnell Gresham Jr. shares his thoughts on senior teammates Tyree Crump and Jordan Harris. Gresham also talks about the last four games for Georgia where the Dawgs have won three of those contests.
Gresham transferred to UGA after graduating from Northeastern University where he played in 90 games for the Huskies’ men’s basketball team, starting 69. He has played in 29 games for the Bulldogs this season, starting 20, and averages just over 20 minutes per game on the hardwood. You can watch his pregame interview by clicking on the video below.
Did you have a senior day at Northeastern?
“I did not. I was considered a redshirt-junior last year.”
Do you have family, family connections around this area and who will be celebrating Senior Day with you in Athens tomorrow (Wednesday)?
“My mother and my grandmother. My aunt who lives down in Powder Springs and a couple other people who live kind of close. Not too many people, but a few people.”
What has been your experience here being a graduate, playing with a young team with nine freshmen, and how have you seen the evolution of your role?
“I had a great experience. Obviously, the season is not over yet. I think my experience so far has been really good. We have not won as many games as we would have liked to, but overall the experience has been great and I am very glad that I came here.”
Do you see this game against Florida as an “ultimate do-over” after losing a double-digit lead to the Gators back in early February? Is this a favorable matchup for the Bulldogs?
“I think it will be a different game than it was the first time. We obviously got up early last time and let them back in the game at their home place. But we feel confident going into the game in that we can take care of business and win even though they are playing pretty good as of late.”
