GT Volleybal and Basketball

Clearly, our minds have been fixed on football these past few months. But did you know that Georgia Tech has other sports as well!? Here are some brief notes:


The Georgia Tech Volleyball team wraps up their season in the next few weeks and with a win-out and some lucky spikes could take ACC conference championship and earn a berth into the NCCA Tournament. Their next home games are November 21 and 22 vs. Boston College and Maryland and finally November 28th against Clemson is the final home game. Below are the current standings:

One game separates us from the mess on top. The loss on Saturday against the Dookies hurt us (if only The Legacy showed up 15 minutes earlier!) Tech has to win out and Duke and UNC both need to lose twice for the Jackets to make the NCAA tournament.

Senior night is the 22nd against the Terps. Yes, earlier that day is Georgia Tech vs. Mercer basketball. Our suggestion to you is to drive to Macon, go to the game, come back up to Atlanta and cheer on volleyball. If The Legacy Crew does it, you have no excuse.


The basketball regular season starts this Friday against Winston-Salem State at 8:30 PM. The disappointing news of the season so far involves Lewis Clinch, who is academically ineligible (again) for the rest of the Fall Semester, and D’Andre Bell, who is out for the season because of spinal stenosis. Clinch can regain his eligibility after December 12th. As we get to the end of football season, look for deeper entries for the basketball team.

Players to Watch: McDonald’s All-American Iman Schumpert, a 6’ 5" guard out of Oak Park, IL. Can we keep him more than one year? Only time will tell that one. Also, watch Lance Storrs. He showed some positive things last year and with Clinch out for the time being he will have a lot more responsibility on his shoulders.
