A few weeks ago, as Georgia Tech’s volleyball team was on the verge of potentially missing out on at-large berth to the NCAA tournament after losses to Miami and Florida State, coach Tonya Johnson asked Paul Johnson to come talk to her women.
He not only came and spoke, he provided them with a little motivation with a sack of marbles.
He gave each player a marble and told them to keep it because they were playing for all the marbles.
Johnson said before each game they take the marbles from the girls, and then give them back after the game.
They are 3-0 since and will play Baylor in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Friday in Los Angeles.
