Swansey responds to report

Georgia guard Zac Swansey told UGASports said Friday night that contrary to earlier media reports he does not harbor any hard feelings toward the Bulldog basketball program and is not necessarily looking to transfer to another school.

"When I talked about Georgia not being a winning program, or whatever, it was misunderstood," Swansey said in an email to UGASports. "What it meant to say was that I was disappointed that we (Georgia) had not been more successful as a basketball team and I was upset that I wasn't given a fair chance to improve that toward the end of the season.

"I don't regret what I said, but I think people are taking more into what I said than what I really want. I have no hard feelings for Georgia or the basketball program."

Swansey started 17 games for the Bulldogs, but lost his starting job to freshman Dustin Ware, who emerged as the team's No. 1 point guard and averaged just 10.3 minutes over his past five games.

The Dunwoody native only played eight minutes in Thursday's 79-60 to Mississippi State in the SEC Tournament. He finished the year averaging 3.9 points per game.

Georgia finished the year 12-20 under interim coach Pete Herrmann who took over for the fired Dennis Felton over a month ago.
