Georgia Tech basketball preview!

#1oo R.P.I. Virginia Tech @ #22o R.P.I. Georgia Tech:

Virginia Tech men’s basketball bubble just went cross-sport and made it all the way to… 3rd Base?!?

The Hokies March Madness bubble may or may not have just gone “Pop Goes the Weasel!” …in, February. Tho’ it sure woulda been way mo’ Bubblelicious on another strong shooting nite as U.n.c. was there. Not a gimmie putt— granted, although clearly not beyond our depth. Particularly at home. This Techn0tronic rematch however is out on the road. 41o-miles So-by-So-West if you are keeping AAA old-school triptik score at home. This time we catch a now kind saggy looking 11 up against 15 down Georgia Tech. Who checks in at a likewise kinda baggy looking 4-11 or tied for 14th or last-best in Atlantic Coast Championship play. Nonetheless, what you wanna know is… who is gonna win and by how much, rights? So, read on, to finds… out!

Georgia Tech Head CoachJoshua Paul Pastner: Age=44, 261–164 (.614) overall,
94–91 (.5o8) so far at Georgia Tech.

Not a dum’, coach… all fingers point to, that.

Kid, Josh Pastner, is a Glen Dale, Wva., native and the son of Marla and Hal Pastner. Hal is a high school/A.A.U. coach and basketball promoter in the Houston (Tx.) area. Josh Pastner knew he wanted to be a coach since he was in the 5th grade. By the age of 13, he was publishing the Josh Pastner Scouting Report of local high school talent in the Houston metro’ area | at the age of 16, the Houston Hoops A.A.U. squad was turned over to Josh Pastner by his father/coach Hal; as this was Josh’s first job as a head coach! While a teenage A.A.U. coach, Josh Pastner coached future NBA players such as Emeka Okafor, T. J. Ford, and Daniel Gibson. WOW!

On April 6, 2009, Josh Pastner was selected to replace John Calipari as head coach at the University of Memphis. At Memphis Coach Josh Pastner only won five conference titles in his seven years as the big whistle; including one C-U.S.A. Coach of the Year award in 2o13. Josh made the March Madness big dance at Memphis his first five seasons; then declined lesser post-season invites in his final two shotgun to Coach-Fu tenured years. Josh is known to be one of the best young hotshot recruiters in the land, including inking the #1 recruiting class nationally for Memphis in 2010. To put it mildly, Josh Pastner is a basketball coach and nothing other than a basketball coach. Coach Josh Pastner also courts a rep’ for lack of post-season success with a lot of one-n-done high roster turnover early entry type talents. Baller Josh Pastner was a walk-on freshman on the 1997 N.C.A.A. Championship University of Arizona basketball team. After winning the NC2A title, Pastner was able to finish his degree in only two and a half years, taking as many as 33 credit hours per semester. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Family Studies from Arizona in December 1998. He finished his master’s in Teaching and Teacher Education in December 1999 before beginning work on his doctorate and starting his coaching career in 2000 as a graduate assistant under Lute Olson at Arizona and later at the University of Memphis under John Calipari.

Then we see that… Georgia Tech basketball coach Josh Pastner filed a civil lawsuit last year in Arizona against Ron Bell and Jennifer Pendley, alleging defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, civil conspiracy, aiding and abetting, and injurious falsehoods and attempts to blackmail and extort. WoW!

Then “wow” some more… as a counterclaim has been filed against Georgia Tech head men’s basketball coach Josh Pastner in Tucson, Ariz., where he’s accused of sexual assault (14 times in 10 months).

The alleged incident happened in February of 2016 while Pastner was still the men’s basketball head coach at Memphis. The counterclaim comes after Pastner filed a civil suit against former booster Ron Bell, who provided impermissible benefits to Yellow Jacket basketball players Tadric Jackson and Josh Okogie, who were both suspended three and six games respectively by the NCAA for the violations. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Pastner’s suit alleges that Bell and his girlfriend “defamed him and attempted to extort and blackmail Pastner and his family.”

(UPDATE: An independent Title IX investigation of Georgia Tech basketball coach Josh Pastner over allegations of sexual misconduct found the claims to be false and “concocted” as part of an extortion scheme. The 29-page report from the law firm Fisher & Phillips, obtained by USA TODAY Sports this summer, detailed numerous attempts by former Pastner friend Ronald Bell to blackmail Pastner, including apparently fabricating allegations that Pastner sexually assaulted Bell’s girlfriend, Jennifer Pendley.)

Mmmmmm-k, and if I knew what all that meant?
I’d know what all of that… meant.

Though Eye do know that Joshies overall numbers and his digits in the ATL are slightly trending upwards; so, there are a couple of encouraging signs, here.

Still yet, may St.Joshua & St.Paul bless and sing: ♫“kum-ba-ya”♪.

Seven of Pastner’s former assistant coaches have (already) gone on to their own careers as head coaches. Pruning a broad branching coaching tree, already!

Daddy Josh’ is (still) married to Kerri Lamas; they have three daughters:
Payten, Sydney, Pastner, and one stepson (Ethan); Lord have mercy.

Georgia Tech at a glance:

  • 5oth in Swipes! (NOW: …a slight move up to 44th best, tho’ mo’/less).
  • 58th in 3-point percentage. (Little cooler here… down to 84th warmest, slight here).
  • 73rd in 3-point percentage D allowed. (Better… up to 49th stiffest in D-1, movement).
  • 285th most FT-makes. (NOW: …down to a contact adverse 323rd, wallpaper > painting, )
  • Everything else is a C+ to the lowest possible C—. Not a bad team, kinda a dull team or a team that lacks spit, shine, and/or luster. (UPDATE: quantifying wise… nearly 50% of the 32 Nationwide Team metrics I track are now C to lowest possible C—, i.e., they have lessened or lilted a bit since we saw them last.
  • 4 whopping injuries are listed here (Coach God quad-bless!) (NOW: hexa-bless, as this is actually getting Training Room crowded for poor Georgia Tech… dang…)

Returning Starters=3

Georgia Tech Strengths:

  • ‘nother huge-azz roster, 17 playars; which means they can scrimmage 3-deep++.
  • One #10, now gone one #none (Or no.0) Sr. year, Michael Devoe (no coaching relation). Was your #43 ranked baller (tho’ only 13th ranked Pt.Guard) overall two years back per Rivals recruiting service. (which clearly shows us just how Guarded the modern era hardwood game has wannabe g.State “splash brothers” become… tho’ I tangent…) Anywho… this number-zero jersey numeral Devoe can indeed whip it good. In particular for being a Koufax or lefty unorthodox One, with a high basketball I.Q., while being an excellent playmaker with really good positional size (6′5″, 191 lbs.) as a pass-first roundball Qb1. As the ‘whispers’ say that Devoe really improved the summer before on the Wreck’s version of a Spanish Armada trip across the pond. The book also says that Michael has range (46.4% overall and an attractive 37.9% long) and is set to jump as a rare kid who plays both ends of the floor equally well. Only knocks were: his handles (2.9 tpg is just a little sloppy-joe) and he needs to be more comfortable and/or aggressive finishing inside the arc. That all said, all the tools are solid and numerous here, what with: a quite upwardly mobile this year… 18.7 ppg, a dead solid: 4.7 rpg, 3.3 apg, 1.4 spg, close to 1 block, and all that with a reasonable 77.3% charity-stripe work. And Michael is also an honor-roll student… props insert (_____) here, check! As Devoe is a lowercase or fringe version of a pro’, the only question is his overseas tax bracketology? Because most high school kids who incredibly net 63% of their shots from the floor and 52% of their scholastic 3’s typically are! (UPDATE(s): Devoe has had some kind leg ‘ding’ and has been slowed for several games off/on the last campaign. St.Nikon bless; as recall on top of all of that, that Devoe also has a history of a lame foot off/on to boot. St.Sebastian go Godspeed @0!) Although, he is a little 3-point happy this season and his shooting is slightly down as is his weight— as he (somehow) cut about a 10 lb. plate and looks just plum raily thin upon breaking tape. In particular in the northern hemisphere. As someone needs to post this One, up. (UPDATE2: …kinda a split-vote here, he moved a few things up and a few things have backed up to boot. or flat grade for it).
  • 6′7″, now up to 22o lb., G/S-F ‘tweener, Jordan Usher is a r-(edux)-senior season kid who is a self-made man. As this kid has brought himself up the depth-chart and accordingly up the box-score alike. As his utility type 14.4 ppg, his 6.5 rpg, with 2.6 apg and 1.5 spg were not really forecasted here. Nor was near linear betterment straight across the board from last time for a guy most magazines seemed to view as being capped. Likewise, his gap-filling 46.8% from the floor and decent enough via sharp improvement of: 33.3% behind the arc. The Free-throwing is middleocore at 2 outta 3, on the nose. The book says that his So.Cal Trojan transfer does not horse around athleticism-wise. With the ability to get to the rim and the strength of a bigger kid trapped in a more parts Wingman body. This is a classical glue-guy; as every team has one or every team needs one. Take thy pick… strange to pick his really high-dribble where he nearly palms things a bit. Tho’ this is a physically strong Wing with size and the ability to get to the rim and create scoring opportunities for himself and others. As Jordan’s high-R.P.M.-motor plus athleticism and said strength make him an unfun cover both offensively and defensively. This Usher was seated in the off-season in the front row, while being ranked No. 9 on a list of the top 10 super seniors returning for the 2021-22 season by David Cobb at That does not suck… As Jordan had okay enough scholastic digits, that really blossomed out on the Touring made for Recruiting tripping/videoing southern-Georgia and/or ATL circuit. Whereby he finally filled in as a four-star prospect was ranked No. 98 on ESPN’s Top 100. That does not suck either, tho’ methinks this kid is pretty much tapped out on headroom; max’ed as a puny goes. And that might just tariff or export fringe Pro’ with a few mo’ videos. (UPDATE: …although he did not fall off an Acme Anvil Wile E. Coyote cliff, this kid is mostly moving down or just holding on, a bit of a letter-grade here).
  • Juniorific Kyle Sturdivant is a 6′2″, 197 lb., is also a Southern California transfer baller. A One or Pt.Guard in this case who transferred all the way to the ATL to enroll in… aerospace engineering! ‘wow’! Don’t get to type that one out, often; or… ever. That Norris Hall slide-rule praise rightfully bestowed, Kyle is said to be a tough playmaker and a solid scorer, adept at controlling the tempo of a game. And Kyle was a VHT peach-state escapee (93rd in America per Rivals). Where he enjoyed a buzzer-beater rep’ for basketball factory Northcross. Said to play as ‘an older’ player does already. Tho’ his bettered tho’ still less than expected: 7.3 ppg with 2.4 rpg, 2.3 apg, on a now modest (up from: ‘meager’) 35.7% from 3-point land say he may need to mature for another year, or three. “Aye” Kyle is better than when we caught his game last year; he can even defense a little bit now; that fairly struck, mo’ was expected from this (So.Cal) Trojan Horse, here. As the book says Sturdivant to be a: tough playmaker and a solid scorer, adept at controlling the tempo of a game as a combo-One or Pt.Guard. As this one-time 7A or AAAAAAA septa-Georgia Player of the Year was only the 91st ranked hoopsters (Rivals) and he only had a high school history of buzzer-beaters making it rain from all over. Said to be a fairly speedy One as well, and now would be a good time for all of this to be, seen. (UPDATE: … it’s not huge or k.Kong, tho’ there is an uptick here nearly straight across, or a bit improved of late).
    DeVoetee 1o1…
  • Dallan Coleman goes by: “DeeBo”. He also goes 6′5″, 215 lbs., as a lead-G or scoring-G at the Two. He be keeping a twist-top-‘fro that be lookin’ like he wears the Acme Anvil on his head same as the (po’) Road Runner once did. That hirsute flat-top look aside… DeeBo was merely named Florida’s Mr. Basketball as well as the Florida Class 4A or AAAA Player of the Year as a senior. NTTAWWT. His father, (Ran, ‘yes’ that’s his swagg), is the head coach at West Nassau H.S. (Florida), tho’ Dallan came up in Memphis Tennessee. d.Coleman was a consensus four-star prospect who peaked nationally at #32 per Outburst scholastic scorer who double-dipped with a surprising 38-double-doubles (ppg + rpg) in his final year and a half under pops down in the sunshine state. Prolly has a solid hoops I.Q. for all that backyard carpentry class or hardwood home-schooling. 6.6 ppg with 1.8 rpg, and 1.o spg on a silky-looking 44.3% from 3-point-land is not the worst 1st-year varsity start. The 8o% charity-stripe donations are quality tho’ the 42.3% overall (which is less than his 3’s) remains, questionable. So, let’s see where this all DeeBo goes come 2o25 or so’s. This could be a good player… the only question is, “is he, great”? (UPDATE: …modest tailing off… or somewhat down since we caught him last).

Gah.Tech Weaknesses:

  • NOT exactly a heavyweight or even cruiserweight team in the seat of the 1-2-3-Wing or backcourt seat(s) of their pants. Yah gotta wonder how well they will take or even enjoy contacting in a 40-minute fight?
  • Second-season, S/F Jehloni James(6′6″, 192 lbs.) is listed as: OUT INDEFINITELY with the, flu’. j.Hill is prolly a 2o25 guy more/less. Tho’ this diminishes frontcourt depth and in particular at the Three or Wing spot a bit as well. Coach God Bless. 2 ppg married to 1 rpg last year as a latent substitute off the pine.
  • Bubba Parham is a gliding-looking 5′10″, 162 lb., r-Sr. season rarefied Lexington, Va. or V.M.I. transfer back-up One. Where Parham -you may recall- made the All-Southern Conference team as a sophomore and was named SoCon Freshman of the Year, the year before that. As this bowling-star in the making (off-court) is a 3-point taking fiend from downtown. As this Bubba’s range is basically the gym; if he’s in it? He’s open and his career 39.1% deep great for 21.1 ppg last time as a Keydet tells you just how explosive this mighty-mite can be out on the perimeter when Parham gets it going when dialing long-distance. As of Gah.Tech now, however, he nets you 7.7 ppg, with 3 rpg, 1.8 apg and he gets you 1.1 swipes in relief with 81% FT’s if you need him. As this former now homecoming septa-A (AAAAAAA) Georgia H.S. champion Bubba is instant O, just add P.T. And he’s prolly your Fox Mulder or X-factor baller in this one. (UPDATE: …now apparently done for the duration with a bad-knee; St.Culbreth bless!) Dang… whispers said ‘soreness’ now they say: “torn right-meniscus”). Dang… again.
  • NEW(er) injuries include… 6′6″, 194 lb., S/F, true-Fr. year: Jermontae Hill. And also 6′1″, 172 lb., second-sophomore year, Deivon Smith. Hill (selfie) elected to r-shirt, well; himself. Hill of the really thick azz mop-top and of not much else stat-line wise this campaign. The book calls him a ‘skillful’ Wing who brings toughness and playmaking alike to the perimeter. He was Top-1oo 247Sports— until he was not. As he fell outta a lotta National Rankings and it is hard to take that as a good sign. Ga. Player of the Year in AAAAAA prior to things bailing out a bit. Looks kinda strong to me in the film room for the Lt.Heavyweight metrics. Lindy’s says he turned down several Big East D-1 schollies (to stay close to Peachtree State home) and ultimately walk-on here. Which makes you wonder if he walks away after this basic washout of an initial year? Deivon Smith is ex of the Bulldogs down at S.e.c. Miss.State. Said to be a: a vertically explosive true One or Pt.Guard with dynamic court vision who excels in transition and is an exceptional finisher with both hands at the rim. The book also reads that Day-Von (phonetically) is an elite defender who is tough, crafty, and smart as your Qb1 on the ball. He did drop you: 5.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.9 assists @Miss.St. He was the: No. 63 nationally per 247Sports. When he was only named the: 2o2o Gwinnett Prep Sports Player of the Year what with an AAAAAAA Georgia championship bling! So, there is that too… and the vibe is that he is cat-quick although cat-nipped thus far this year. More was expected here… time=tell on dat.
  • …honestly? Generically speaking… upon UPDATEs… this struck me as a team with some potentially tired practice-court sticks gone flat-tire game-day, legs.
  • …and, it kinda felt like a team looking for a way out or maybe even with (a few) guys checking out already to me.

Jacket Nest: (depth=3 to 5, match-up ‘pends…)

Tristian Maxwell was sidelined with a foot injury (whispers say: “right-foot snapped”, St.Servatius bless), and there was no timetable for return. Well, until he… returned; that is. Sidelined tho’ now back were his 6′2″, 2o9 lbs. As this sophomoric lead-G and his nearly doubled 6.4 ppg with 1.4 rpg and his nugget or rookie year legacy baller swagg are noticeably improved this campaign. As ‘yes’, he is the son of Vernon Maxwell, a former the University of Florida All-American and longtime N.b.a. veteran and champion with the H’town Rockets way way back when. 40% when dial-long-distance roams well enough. The 50% on 15′, unguarded set-shots with 10 seconds to shoot however is not commiserating with all of that. As this hommie be keeping near earlobe sized earrings and you need to have it together to ear-farm that many carrots just like dat. Former North Carolina State Player of the Year one season in H.S.; and then Nc’s Mister Basketball scholastically the next. This was where young mad-Max’ had a pure blow-torch scoring rep’ which tagged him 198th in America from 247Sports. Does not seem to want for confidence on tape; prolly has some trysting lady-swagg fo’ it to boot. Has all kinda stars (*’s) inked on his off-forearm, so he’d best be shooting lights-out to extended the metaphor here. (UPDATE: Missed his last two contests, listed as: QUESTIONABLE with a bum thumb, St.Julia bless!) Prolly is a good scorer, and this Trist’ too is prolly a 2o24 or so ask back… (UPDATE2: …his thumb has worsened and so did his shooting for what little metrics he did rack up… may be done for the duration is the word. Godspeed and thumbs up!)

stingHers 1o1!

6′7″, 2o9 lb., final-year, Khalid Moore is a Three or S/F who handles and moves a bit more like a lead-G or a Two. Khalid is a lengthy, athletic (7-foot, 0.5-inch wingspan) Forward with good scoring ability and a top-shelf basketball I.Q. As you can literally see this Pterodactyl-looking coverage on film when he is on D. This is a Rodin or thinking man’s baller. Although this year he is only thinking of: 5.8 ppg and 3.4 rpg with a reasonable 43.8% from the floor, on a less than Summa Cum Laude 26.1% long-distance and partly 35% career all. As ‘more’ was expected from this part-time starting combo-F, here. That squarely struck… warming, on-trend baller here too gents… maybe it is all coming together for him after a series of career-highs? (UPDATE: …has actually shown a few positive signs… worker bee 1o1 who has droned into a or upgrade here).

Third-year with three years remaining Rodney Howard is a kinda strapping looking: 6′1o″, 246 lb., BIG upfront down-low for Gah.Tech. Who frankly does not explode or ball as physical as he looks in the film-room. U.G.A. or national champion in football transfer Bulldog baller. (Wonder how that collar wears on rivalry court?) This after he renaged on his Olè Miss. signing thus making the Jackets his third school technically speaking in less than 2-full-years. (And we know how Eye tends to feel about that). Anywho… No. 1o6 in the 247Sports rankings. Did pocket a USA National Prep School National Championship bling. So that only forever counts. Only had so-so scoring and rebounding digits in preparation for his 3-colleges in ≅1.5 years. Did I mention the change of addy labels, yet? Mmmmm-K, tho’ 5.8ppg with 5.1 rpg and 1.1 bpg that has now bottomed out at .3 bpg. What with a former 50% from the floor that has now plummeted to 43.8% is not the worst triune collegiate start.  As this is a legit Five or true-C who is only in his 5th year of organized ball. So, who knows where Mister Rod.Mo’ R.A.T.T. 2o25… projects? (As there are just a few flashes/whiffs of ‘zo.Mourning to the way he goes at the rack on tape here). (UPDATE: …this poor kid’s digits nearly speak to a trick-knee or sore-feet(s) or an ankle turn or whatever plumbing wise downstairs… as something is clearly off here. or downgrade for it; Godspeed!) (UPDATE2: …that box-scored right as rain… sourcing says that Coach Josh is very high on this guy… said he is on the cusp of breaking out and coming correct… we shall see?) Though there is surely handsome enuff Talent here, on that Eye and Coach J, agry. This is a curious/alluring one… if/when he puts it all together?

Beating a kinda sneaky looking Gah.Tech down in the ATL is all about, what(s)?

Illationconclusion(s) and OPT digits:

Number of Jackets who could suit up @Tech=4'ish give/take...

the takeaway:
The takeaway here is

that yah; the four of us were right to be hesitant on being too taken with Mike Young and Co. this campaign.

They are mid-pack or middlecase+++ A.c.c. good; granted.

Like a midrange B— good; fair ’nuff.

Which is pretty good— to be sure.
Which is Tourneying good— to be sure.
And that is squarely to their credit at a (seemingly) football school.

We are just not sure which measure of Tournament this best/most R.A.T.T. qualifies for?
NC2A’s, honestly? Prolly R.A.T.T. not(s).

N.I.T.? Could be…
…tho’ so could C.B.I./CIT be as well.

And yets… “shooters {sic: do} shoot!”
So, in a compressed All Championship Conference tourney?
What if they did add propane to an acetylene torch and get hot like the Sun?                                🍿

Oh, wait… there Eye goes again… always putting the cart out in front of the horse.

As we really do need to epinephrine-pin inject ourselves into dealing with a slouching GeeTee A.S.A.P. in this one here. NO need to let them go Coach Jim Morrison and be: “buzzing ’round our hive.”

As we now go bee catcher on a trickier than you think @Georgia Tech.
As our Tech should win, technically speaking…
…unless we play U.n.c. twice and are not so technically, inclined?


Our handy-dandy friend the so-called Forum Guide of Graham Houston fame is calling for a staggering 54-point VicTory dance in this one, here! When taken pro-rata it equates downward to a mo’ credible-looking 4.9-point Tech Triumph. The thingy was… although it did not hit quite congruently or 1:1… this Forum Guide was not far off on in-common roundball round-robin opponents. Meaning, the ones that GeeTee did per se win or perform better against— it was not *that* much of a betterment. They were not posterizing peeps that punked VeeTee. They were only a few points better more/less more often than not. That would seem scatter diagram significant in pure textbook variance terms to me.

9 PM kick-off!

The annualized year-to-date vitals say that… VeeTee is up +4% in shooting percentage margin (75% of which was better O with a scosche better D); V.P.I. is up +3% in 3-point percentage margin (little better on O&M O and yet a little stung on less o&m D), and yet Gah.Tech is up a whopping +1 carom in rebounding margin of Windex Wipes year-to-date. (As both clubs logged small or lowercase positive rebounding margins for the duration).

The most recent 5-game metrics say that… 0% edge as nobody is up much of anything in shooting percentage margin of late (per: VeeTee +2% on O and GeeTee 2% stiffer on D… wild!); with the y.Jackets up a stunning +4% overall in 3-point percentage margin (due: to VeeTee being +6% on O and yet again, GeeTee was a stifling 10% starchier on D!) and yet the Wramblin’ Wreck is up +1 miss in rebounding margin backboarding in the last couple of weeks. (Both squads are positive, GeeTee is just a little mo’ P.A.T.T. on the fiberglass).

Armchair Pt.Guard’s:

The Hokies just stumbled at home Saturday in a lackluster L to North Carolina in a fight that never really truly caught fire. Said L, concluded a four-game homestand, and the scoring output matched Virginia Tech’s second-lowest or bottoming total of the season.

(Δτχ roadie, 1o1).
The Hokies’ post-seasoning route now includes three road assignments in the last four games of the regular season. After the game at Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech will play at Miami on Saturday, then home against Louisville on Tuesday, and finally at Clemson on March 5 preceding the A.c.c. Tournament.

Georgia Tech (11-16, 4-12) will be in its -N.b.a. -esque- third game in five days. The Yellow Jackets began by winning at Pitt, and then there was an unexpected long bus ride to Syracuse because of a problem with an aircraft. The Jackets got short-shirted 74-73 in overtime to Syracuse on Monday night. Dang…

With the heavy schedule, the Yellow Jackets might need to rely on depth. Over the past five games, their reserves have outscored opposing bench players 112-41.

A.B.C. (Always Be, Closing):
Georgia Tech has a .333 record in games decided by less than 4 points.

BO DEREK or 10!
LAST 10 GAMES: Yellow Jackets: 4-6, averaging 66.1 points, 29.4 rebounds, 14.5 assists, 8.7 steals, and 2.o blocks per game while shooting 42.4% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 71.3 points per game.

Hokies: 6-4, averaging 71.2 points, 27.6 rebounds, 15.6 assists, 5.5 steals, and 3.o blocks per game while shooting 47.9% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 65.7 points.

GeeTee is a .4375 host; whereas VeeTee is .5ooo as a guest.
VeeTee is up +4% at the charity stripe for the year.
VeeTee is +3 in R&R in the last fortnight.

The Call...

No.41 Net Ranking Virginia Tech @ no.151 Net Ranking Georgia Tech:

Well, hopefully, the better mo’ Talented team shoots a bit better and out-talents the lessor Talented team in this one here. K.I.S.S. as that.

Thingy is… this one here is down in the ATL.

And as Will taught us all years past… the A.c.c. visitor only wins about 3 times in 10 out in the A.c.c. road. Mel Gibson gone Sad Max’ if you will…


That aside, well; aside…

…as said above, there is 0% need to let a buncha bouncy backcourters -and not a whole lot else roster wise- hang-around @home down in Georgia. i.e., there is no need to fiddle around here.

As ‘aye’, the travelogue and the Training Room scoops do favor the good-Tech. Although the recent 5-game trends and being at home does favor the ‘rong-Tech.

Ergo, therefore, to Whit…

String them up early, often, and #FreeTheScrubsLate!!!
Come on Coach Mike… “🎼let me show you how it’s done…🎶

  1. That’s a gutsy pick. Looks like a tie with each team scoring three question marks. If the game does end in a tie, you will be the GOAT picker for VT hoops.

    1. …not umpossible to have to fracas for this to close.
      …in particular, if the other Tech is all kinda froggy @home themselves.


  2. If the team that played UNC shows up and shoots just a little more accurately VT will win big – if not it will be a tough game that goes down to the wire. I think the Hokies are focused and play hard and make some shots. GT is weak sauce and VT comes to the ATL and picks up a much needed victory.
