Technical Tidbits 12/24: Georgia Tech Basketball Falls in the Aloha State

Happy Christmas Eve!

NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Honestly, this was not a surprising loss. Houston has a very good basketball team, and Tech looked outmatched the entire game. For the Jackets, Moses Wright had another good contest, scoring 19 points. Michael Devoe was his normal self, with 17 points, and in his second game back from injury, Jose Alvarado had seven points with four assists. Tomorrow, Tech will either play Hawaii or Washington at 6:30 p.m. eastern time on ESPN2 for third place in the Diamond Head Classic. Finish strong, Jackets!

Georgia Tech’s 2020 recruiting class is continuing to garner accolades. Two players, Jared Ivey and Khatavian Franks, were named 2019 7-A and 6-A Georgia High School State Players of the Year. Ivey and Franks, along with eight other members of the recruiting class, were also named to all-state teams by Recruit Georgia. Congratulations to all of the incoming recruits, we can’t wait to see what you all will do on the Flats!

Earlier this year, Andy Ogletree added himself to a list of legendary champions when he won the U.S. Amateur Golf Tournament in Pinehurst, NC. This coming April, Ogletree will have another chance to make history, as the first amateur winner of The Masters Tournament. The Tech senior gained an invitation into the prestigious tournament by virtue of his U.S. Amateur win, and will hopefully have one of the greatest weeks of his life in Augusta. Congratulations, Andy. Bring a green jacket home!

The 2019 NIVC (In your face NCAA) Champion Georgia Tech Volleyball team has been getting recognized for their play all season. This continued yesterday, with the announcement that freshman Julia Bergmann was named to Volleyball Magazine’s All-Freshman team. This is a great accomplishment for the outside hitter, hopefully one of many. Congratulations, Julia!

This is a great video to get you in the spirit for Christmas. The Michael Isenhour Toy Drive is one of Georgia Tech’s best traditions, and this year’s edition went very well. Every toy and dollar donated makes a huge difference to children and families in need. Hopefully, donations will continue to grow every year.

Question of the Day: What’s your prediction for the Diamond Head Classic tomorrow?
