My commendation to you for watching this game. You are truly loyal.
Georgia Tech has a chance to get out of last place in the ACC, or at least force a four-way tie for ninth at 3-9.
Obviously, a big piece of this game is that the Yellow Jackets will be without Glen Rice Jr., suspended indefinitely by Brian Gregory. Rice, I probably don’t have to tell you, leads the team in scoring and rebounding and takes on a lot of ballhandling responsibilities. We’ll see who fills in the void and how the Jackets manage having such a short bench. I’d expect to see both former walk-ons Derek Craig and Nick Foreman giving minutes. Guard Jason Morris may get some minutes at the power forward spot.
It’ll be interesting to see where Rice’s shots go. I am sure Gregory is hoping that Daniel Miller and Kammeon Holsey pick up the slack. Another piece is how Mfon Udofia handles pressure without Rice.
Virginia Tech players to watch:
Forward Victor Davila, 26 of 38 from the floor in his last seven games, but missed the Hokies’ last game, a loss, to Florida State.
Guard Erick Green has scored in double figures in the past 27 games.
