  1. Charleston Southern, 7 PM, ACC Network (and McCamish!)

    You are right that some teams play off Howard/Saba when they get the ball. Both have shown they can drive to basket if you get too close. As for the jumper - Saba can make it already - but suspect he has short leash if he starts taking it unless late in shot clock. Howard does not have a...
  2. ? On Concessions at McCamish?

    Glad you can make it in person! Concessions - standard ballgame stuff - hot dogs, popcorn, chips, candy, cokes, etc. There is also Chick-fil-A (limited menu) and Sonny's BBQ - both are in end zone to the left of the main entrance. Not sure what else in on the other side as I go that way to my...
  3. #[email protected] Monday night 7:30EST

    Spot on! It's a lot easier for those of us who have been at the games and seen it first hand vs just looking at stats/highlights (they don't show highlights of player getting beat defensively often). As others get to see the games once more widely televised ... and if Kelly gets significant...

    Thoughts from being there - Meka played behind Howard (Saba did not play - no injury, Meka got the chance tonight) - did not play much. Howard played well early, then really struggled late. Last 5+ minutes was small ball - Neither point guard had a great game ... both did some good and some bad...
  5. Stetson game

    Appeared to be ok - he came back and sat on bench, looked to be ok - no reason for him to go in game at that point.
  6. Stetson game

    My thoughts from being there - Stetson is not as good as Miami-Ohio. Not as quick on perimeter. - GT played a LOT of zone, especially in first half - Stetson struggled against it. - Howard had two fouls in first five minutes (we can't afford that most nights) - he stayed in a little, then Saba...
  7. Tip Off Tomorrow Miami of Ohio

    My take from being there Defense was good, very good at times, not great. Miami has veteran guards and they are hard to turnover. Offense is the bigger issue. If Devoe has a bad night - how are we getting to 70 on anyone? The lineup that was in most of the second half -...
  8. Tip Off Tomorrow Miami of Ohio

    Excellent write-up on Miami-Ohio in article below. They are 'old', guard oriented, a lot of one on one - may have overachieved last year and basically same players just a year older. Scroll down in article to find Miami-Ohio write-up. This article puts them in a group of five as 'second tier'...
  9. Morehouse Exhibition Game

    I was there - some comments/thoughts ... long post to touch a lot of questions posted Starting five - Sturdivant, Devoe, Kahlid, Usher, Howard Parham was not dressed (injury) - was walking and dribbling with no limp/issues before game - so hopefully will be back before Xmas Maxwell was not...
  10. GT Hoops General Topics

    From a medical web site below - recovery time from meniscus surgery ... it all depends how severe the injury was. Parham could be back by January, or not at all during the sesason. The article in AJC says he did have surgery - so injury was severe enough that rest was likely not the best option...
  11. 2021 - 2022 GT Basketball Schedule

    Three year series - first two (this is second) at McCamish - and next season at Ga State, supposedly it will be the first game in Ga State's new arena. A three year series was also signed with UAB - last year was supposed to be at UAB (UAB had Covid issues and game was cancelled very late) with...
  12. 2021 - 2022 GT Basketball Schedule

    We should be going to UGA .. Big 10 team in Atlanta ... and the GA State and UAB series (which Pastner has said they would play) - both of them likely home games (GA State for sure .... UAB - TBD if we go there next season or third year of the series).
  13. NCAA v. Alston in the Supreme Court

    The challenge for NCAA is how do you strike a balance between allowing players to profit off their NIL - while maintaining competitive balance. I see no way Supreme Court does not rule against the NCAA on this, but hopefully they consider the competitive advantage arguments and define some...
  14. Where does this year's coaching by Pastner rank in GT history?

    Agree with your assessment - except the teams Mark Price and John Salley's junior/senior years might have been the best teams GT ever had ... A lot of people under 30 may never have seen them or watched much of them (the style of play was different back then also) - but talent and chemistry wise...
  15. Where does this year's coaching by Pastner rank in GT history?

    The test with CJP will be the next 3-4 years. He has done good job from where he started. One year he whiffed on recruits - but otherwise has followed the roadmap he laid out at the start. Talent coming in next year is among best we've seen in a long time. Exposure and ACC Championship will...
  16. Jose F. Alvarado Senior Thread

    Jose and all the players (on every team in the country) should do what is in their best interest with regards to the extra year of eligibility. I have no doubt CJP and staff will work with each of them to help them understand where they might land if they choose to pursue professional...
  17. Georgia Tech, Your 2021 ACC Champions

    Two interesting stats .... GT is now tied for fourth in all time ACC Tournament titles with four (Duke, UNC, State are 1-2-3 - GT is tied with Wake at 4). Since GT joined the ACC - GT is third is most ACC Tournament titles - with twice as many as anyone since then except Duke/UNC (several...
  18. Georgia Tech, Your 2021 ACC Champions

    I have been season ticket holder for 30+ years (since early 80's). I attend almost all home games and most years make it to one or sometimes a couple road games. This year was frustrating because of not getting to attend any games in person, but I was able to watch every game on TV (live or...
  19. ACC Tourney

    I was at the ACC Tournament today - so nice to see in person hoops for first time all season! Observations .... -- Syracuse zone surprised me to a degree - thought is was more traditional 2-1-2 when I see them at McCamish .... it is really a 2-2-1 with the middle two really extended to wings...
  20. Double Bye baby.

    As season ticket holder for many years - who did not get to attend a single game this season for first time since before I was a student (a long long time ago) ... When a friend got ACC Tournament tickets and asked me to go with him I was excited to get to see GT in person on Wednesday for first...
