Hicks should return for FSU game

Georgia Tech center Nate Hicks should be able to play against Florida State on Thursday at Alexander Memorial Coliseum, coach Paul Hewitt said on Monday. The game is at 7 p.m.

Hicks, a 6-foot-10 freshman, has missed the past three games after having his appendix removed. He is averaging 1.6 points and 2.4 rebounds this season and has provided a steady defensive presence for the Jackets inside the free-throw lane.

The Yellow Jackets (10-12, 3-6 ACC) are coming off a 65-56 loss to Clemson on Saturday. They have lost three consecutive games.

The Seminoles (16-7, 6-3 ACC) were beaten by North Carolina 89-69 on Sunday. They are led by Chris Singleton (13.9 points per game), the only Seminole ranked in the ACC’s top-20 scorers. He also averages 7.3 rebounds per game.

If he can’t play, then somebody has GOT to step-up and get those 2 points and 2 rebounds.
