NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament- Florida State vs Georgia Tech Nell Redmond-USA TODAY Sports

While I’ve been reluctant to use AJC content in the Tidbits since they threw up a paywall, it’s early in the month and this is a very important story. Unlike Moses Wright, PG Jose Alvarado has not yet committed to the NBA Draft. That means that he has until 11:59 p.m. ET tonight to decide whether or not to return to the Flats. Both Alvarado and Wright have worked out for multiple NBA teams, including the Dallas Mavericks and the Golden State Warriors. There’s definitely NBA interest, so Alvarado has to weigh his financial options with new NIL endorsement opportunities against the prospect of playing professional basketball. It’s definitely a tough decision, but one I’m sure will be supported around the Georgia Tech fanbase with no doubts.

If the Georgia Tech Women’s Basketball program wants to sell a lot of tickets, this is how it’s done. By scheduling the UConn Huskies, likely the most successful women’s basketball program in NCAA history, they’ll be getting droves of fans into McCamish Pavilion on December 9. That’s when the two teams will meet up for the first time since the matchup broke Tech Women’s Basketball attendance records in 2010. This is going to be a huge game for the Jackets, and while it likely won’t be a win, the national exposure and revenue from the game will deliver a huge boost to the program.

The Georgia Tech swim team has made it a tradition to place a large number of scholars on the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America team. In fact, according to the article above, this is the tenth straight year that the Jackets have had nine or more student-athletes on the team. It speaks to the dedication that the coaches and student-athletes have to success in all parts of life. Congratulations, Jackets!

The Georgia Tech “Stinger” Pass is one of the best ways to enjoy football games from numerous viewpoints at Bobby Dodd Stadium each season. For those unfamiliar with how it works, you don’t know where your seats will be until the day of the game. You’re guaranteed access for every game, but the unknown seating throws a fun wrinkle into the gameday experience. This season’s “Stinger” passes are now on sale, with upper-level passes going for $145. For $100 more, lower-level seating is up for grabs. Unfortunately, the program is not compatible with the “Mayhem at MBS” game against UNC, but holders do get “priority access” to buy tickets.

Today is the day! Be sure to catch a whole bunch of Yellow Jacket action on the ACC Network all day.

Question of the Day: Will you be purchasing a “Stinger” pass for this coming season?
