Georgia Tech vs. Alabama A&M Halftime Report

Tech leads 34-20.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Jackets head into halftime with a 34-20 lead. Charles Mitchell leads the way with 9 points and 9 rebounds.

The free throw shooting has been an eyesore so far, with Tech hitting only 6-13 (46.2%).

Bolden looks to shake off shooting woes from last season. Like against uga, he hit a catch-and-shoot three early but was quiet after that.

Corey Heyward saw his first action of the season since Jorgenson was held out as a precaution for his sore knee. The real benefactor was starting point guard Josh Heath, who had a couple of early buckets and has 5 points, 3 assists and 2 rebounds at half.

Good offensive rebounding from the whole team. Robert Sampson showed hustle diving on floor for balls but picked up 2 early fouls.

The play has generally sloppy and sluggish so far for both teams. Lazy passing almost got Tech in trouble at times.

Demarco Cox and Charles Mitchell are playing big. They combined for 16 points and 11 rebounds, including an offensive rebound by Charles and lay-in at 11 minutes to go first half.

AAMU was content to go inside despite it not working well. The Tech defense did occasionally lose shooters, and as a result resorted to slumping inside. It didn't matter as AAMU was offensively punchless.

MGH converted a circus 360 degree layup. He was hacked but no foul was called. He has 6 points and a board at the half.

AD Gueye saw his first action at 3 minutes left in the half. He had maybe the most memorable moment of the first 20 minutes with a tip-in to beat buzzer off a Tadric miss.
