Georgia will be led by first-year head coach Mike White during the 2022-23 season. White averaged more than 22 wins per season in 11 combined campaigns at Louisiana Tech (2012-15) and Florida (2015-22). His teams reached postseason play during every season possible and also was a consensus selection by bracketologists for an NCAA bid in 2020 before the tournament was cancelled.

The Bulldogs’ 2022-23 roster features five returning letterwinners and nine newcomers.

The returnees include Jabri Abdur-Rahim, Braelen Bridges, Jaxon Etter, Jailyn Ingram and Kario Oquendo. Oquendo is the SEC’s top returning scorer in league action after averaging 18.3 points in conference contests last season, while Bridges became the first Bulldog to lead the SEC in field goal percentage in more than 40 years.

Georgia’s newcomers include six transfers and three freshmen. Five of the transfers – Frank Anselem, Justin Hill, Jusaun Holt, Mardrez McBride and Matthew-Alexander Moncrieffe – played on teams that reached the NCAA Tournament in either 2021 or 2022, and the sixth – Terry Roberts – was the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Year at Bradley last season. The freshmen include top-100 prospect KyeRon Lindsay and walk-ons Brandon Klatsky and Jaden Newell.
