THE 2020 AWARD

BOSTON, MA -- Georgia's Anthony Edwards the recipient of the 2020 Kyle Macy Award, presented annually to the nation’s top freshman.

The 6-foot-5 Atlanta native led all freshman nationally in scoring. Edwards scored in double figures in 27 of 32 games and averaged 19 points per game. He scored a total of 610 points, which ranks No. 7 in Georgia's all-time, single-season scoring leaders and No. 10 among the SEC's top scoring efforts by a freshman.

Edwards scored 25 or more on seven occasions, including a season-best 37 against Michigan State at the Maui Invitational. Nationally he ranked 19th in scoring, 11th in three-point field goals (72), 17th in free throws made (132) and 19th in free throws attempted (171).

The award is named for Macy, the 1975 Indiana "Mr. Basketball," who played his freshman season at Purdue University, averaging 13.8 points per game while leading the Boilermakers in free throws (85.9 percent for the season). He started in 25 of 27 games, helping them to a 16-11 season record.

After playing his freshman year at Purdue, Macy transferred to the University of Kentucky in 1976. He started every game for the Wildcats in 1977. A three-time All-America and three-time All-SEC player, Macy was a member of Kentucky's 1978 National Championship team. In his senior year of 1979-80, he became the first Kentucky player ever to be named consensus Southeastern Conference Player of the Year.
