Shumpert’s triple-double

Before Iman Shumpert did it on Tuesday against Virginia Tech, there were three triple-doubles in Georgia Tech history, the last done by Kenny Anderson against Pittsburgh in 1989.

Tech’s Triple-Doubles

*Jan. 25, 2011 – Iman Shumpert – 22 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists vs. Virginia Tech

Dec. 28, 1989 – Kenny Anderson – 32 points, 12 rebounds, 18 assists vs. Pittsburgh

Nov. 20, 1987 – Dennis Scott – 17 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists vs. Alcorn State

Feb. 6, 1986 – Bruce Dalrymple – 14 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists vs. UNC Charlotte

ACC Triple-Doubles This season

*Jan. 25, 2011 – Iman Shumpert – 22 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists vs. Virginia Tech

Nov. 14, 2010 – Chris Singleton (Florida State) – 22 points, 11 rebounds, 10 steals vs. UNC-Greensboro

Shumpert said he didn’t know he had accomplished the feat until assistant coach Darryl LaBarrie told him during a timeout that a triple-double wasn’t as good if the team didn’t win.

“I’m all smiles tonight,” he said after posting the first triple-double in ACC play in Tech history. Shumpert was just three steals away from posting a quadruple-double. He also had just one turnover in 38 minutes.

Shumpert was amazing tonight. He also had 7 steals and held Malcolm Delaney to 8 points by playing suffocating defense. It was one of the most impressive overall performances I have seen in a while.

Gary Fenchak reports that McCollum enjoyed visiting GT and has been stressed out over all the attention from so many schools. Maybe considering ND and Clemson in addition to us. Hard look at Issack Black at RB out of Virginia. Also, looking at Burman Stovall. Hard hitter on defense.

Haven’t seen any film of Issack Black but if we can ge him and McCollum in the same backfield then lets see wo laughs at the triple option then. Va. and Kentucky have offered him but maybe we can get him. Stovall could be a boost but have heard he is a strong lean to Miss St. The only other hot prospect I know GT is after is N.U. Turpin but from all reports he is a shoo in for Navy.

We should have looked at Jim “splitter’ Hayes. Tough as nails and hard nosed and steady. Instead we let GSU and CFU get their foot in the door. These kids don’ have to have a bunch of danged stars to be great material. Dale Thomas is from the same area but we let Clemson snatch him and Chris Wilkes up.

Don’t think Black is the same type of runner than McCollum but he may be tougher in small yardage situations. He reportely may have some academic shortfalls as well. McCollum is great student wise and could have immediate impact as a leader. CPJ thinks he could be the key to next year as he woud get immediate playing time.

Shumpert is playing like a better ballhandling version of Corey Brewer. If he continues to play like this he’s definitely going to leave early. He has ideal size, athleticism, and bball IQ. I just hope he continues to improve his 3pt shot if he decides to leave. That seems to be his only weakness if he wants to play SG in the NBA. He’s very reminiscent of Crittenton but he limited himself to only playing PG (which I think Shumpert is not).

Great job by Shumpert.

I am told it doesn’t look good regarding Black as Va. will probably get him. McCollum is apparently not thay solid with Clemson. Garnett thinks GT still has a shot at him. With most every major university after him, this would be a monumental catch for us. McCollum also can place kick and punt. He rewrote the record books at GN. This would likely be a saving grace for CPJ and his program to get McCollum.

McCollum has been in touch with Tuitt. What gives with that? Hope ND doesn’t end up with both. Marvin’s brother Garnett thinks he will announce Friday at Hayes Corner. CPJ and CAG need to revisit him before then. Edna Holcomb said Marvin was wearing an Auburn cap this morning but she saw him tonght at Pizza Hut with a Clemson cap on. Garnett as wearing a GT cap and Katie had on a USC cap an a FSU sweat shirt. Hre we go again. Drama playing out before our very eyes.

Marvin was at Cracker Barrel this morning wearing a ND cap and a UGA hoodie. Garnett had an Oregon cap and a VT shirt on. Katie had a PSU cap and a OSU sweatshirt on. Marvin said he would announce tommorrow where he was going. He plans on doing it at Hayes Corner around 1 PM. Why doesn’t he just get it over with and whats with all these different school’s apparel? The McCollums were riding in a brand new Oldsmobile with a GT bumper sticker and Auburn pompoms on the antennae. Wonder how they got that car? NCAA may be interesed in finding out.

Katie told Edna the car was hers. They just laughed when asked about the caps and stuff. Katie liked CAG’s ring she said but the decision was his and his alone. Garnett and katie both wanted Marvin to go to GT but with practically all the major schools after him, Marvin said he wasn’t totally sure. Marvin said although he had verbally committed to Clemson he still might go elewhere. Indicated Auburn,Oregon,PSU,Florida and GT were all places he like. He said everyone would find out tommorrow at Hayes as he was ready to put this behind him and move on. He said he would pick which cap he would put on at 1 PM. Issack Black just signed with Va. and N. U. Turpin with Navy. No big suprise on either. We just need to get Marvin.

Garnett is driving a new Toyota! Said he BOUGHT it from Maria Fenell in Athens. Strange that 2 new cars show up right before the announcement tommorrow and Marvin is sporting a new Dell laptop. Something is fishy in Denmark.
