Georgia Tech-Boston College live blog

Greetings-

I’m going to have to join in progress, as they say. I’m on my way home and just realized I hadn’t posted. I’m interested to see what happens after Georgia Tech’s best (in my opinion) game of the season, if the Jackets can maintain the momentum and win a second game in a row.

Enjoy the game.

Alan “the horse” Nass. “Iron Mike” Thomasovich. Ye gads, I’ve lost my mind. Somebody please tell me it’s not 1962 any more.

I thought Ciraldo was the only one who used the term “bunny shot” till reading it in descriptions of games by other teams this year. DUHHH. lol

First half against MD ended bad, but we were at least hitting baskets in that one. We’re pretty damn cold tonight

Just when the team was showing progress from last game, we regress. I guess that is the lot of a jacket fan these days. up and down and down and up, you never know what you are going to get from one game to another.

Man BC what they shooting 70 % from 3? We can’t defend and like it is all season 10 percent from 3 won’t win any games is anybody else tired of seeing Reid pop 3s from NBA 3? Come on jackets

Should be a technical on BC for shooting or dunking after the whistle.

Why was that a “jump ball” a couple of minutes ago. Looked like we had secure possession and the BC player was pretty much tackling.

This team never quits. They can’t shoot the basketball, but at least they give 100%. Someone please tell me Hunt, Poole and/or Bolden can “fill it up”. We don’t have a player with range outside of 5′.

decent possession in trying to work the ball, but not the shot you want, a fadeaway jumper.

@ Wreck-Ball…..WHAT talent on this team. We have some good players, but we are definitely not loaded with talent or depth

We do have a lot of talent on this team. Morris and Royal were very highly recruited (I’m not sure about Udofia but I thought he was too). I’m failing to understand how they can’t beat a subpar team in Boston College on a consistent basis. Even with our first win, we should’ve beaten them by 20 points. Frustrated, but hopefully CBG can get it together within these next couple years. If we have another season like this next year, I will get a little bit anxious of our team/coach. With Robert Carter and Marcus Hunt specifically, there’s just too much talent on the team to have another bad season.

Sad, we need DEPTH as well as TALENT, and we definitely have no depth

This team will make a giant step forward next year. The big men are in place, just need some ACC caliber shooters/scorers to go with them. I look for the freshman and Poole to fill this need right off the bat. This will bring the defense farther out and make Holsey and Miller(with Carter) that much more dangerous.
Should be fun to see the team transform over the next couple of seasons.

I’m no hoops expert (but I am on all other matters!), but it might be like football in that the players we have just don’t fit the system CBG wants to run. Also, one of our best players is still suspended for unknown reasons.

I will say that this team seems to play fairly strong defense – although I don’t know what the metrics say – and they will not quit.

A good thing….Tech did not quit after getting behind 15.
Too bad there is no consistent shooter.
