Shumpert moving up lists

With 12 points, four rebounds but no steals in Wednesday’s loss to Virginia, Georgia Tech’s Iman Shumpet still moved up a few of the school’s career charts.

But what is troubling is after doing a solid job shutting down Farrakhan in the first half (he had just 5 points), he was able to score 12 points in the second half, including a few free throws during the critical 12-0 run in the second half that sealed the game. Virginia coach Tony Bennett said afterward that Farrakhan was playing with some sort of stomach ailment. He went 3-of-9 from the field, but 9-of-10 from the free-throw line. He scored 23 points in the teams’ first meeting.

The last three players Shumpert has faced in the ACC have combined to score 78 points. Coach Paul Hewitt said the points scored by Virginia Tech’s Malcolm Delaney and Nolan Smith can be traced back to Tech’s poor shot selection. Missed 3-pointers led to long rebounds and easy layups or three-point plays for the guards.

Farrakhan was taking advantage of some of the switches Tech would make on defense, getting between the transitioning players and into the lane.

Georgia Tech has lost 5 of their last 6 football games, only beating Duke.

Georgia Tech only graduates 43% of their football players.

New coach. Please. Will somebody tell all these people with or without remedial jobs (i.e. UGA grads) to get off these boards? Thanks, bye.
