Technical Tidbits 12/27: Georgia Tech Basketball Looks to ACC Play

Hopefully Jose stays healthy.

NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

According to the article, Georgia Tech Basketball must improve on the offensive end of the court to have a decent record in the ACC. Tech is lucky to have Jose Alvarado back, because the team has shown flashes of being very good when he’s on the floor. Without him, very good turns into terrible quickly. There’s no true ball-handler and emotional leader without Alvarado, so hopefully he stays healthy and continues to play at a high level for the Jackets the rest of the season. He’s the key cog in Tech’s offensive production.

We at FTRS have already done a Georgia Tech All-Decade team, with the help of the readers. This is a writer’s look at the best players for the Yellow Jackets on offense from the last decade. I agree with most of the picks, some of them are no-brainers, while some of them are much closer calls. No one will ever agree 100% on these though, so feel free to voice your opinion on this list in the comments.

This article is over a year old, but is well worth reading. It details the story of current Tech commit Jahmyr Gibbs, a spectacular running back. His ability is even more spectacular when you find out just how much adversity he has fought through. Gibbs was homeless at one point, but with the help of his teammates and grandmother, has stayed strong and played at a high level. Keep it up, Jahmyr!

This is a much-deserved award for Moses Wright. The big man played very well during Tech’s three games in Hawaii, and will be a key part of Tech’s lineup during ACC play. Besides James Banks, he’s really one of the Jackets’ only options at center. Good work, Moses!
