Georgia Tech Season Review

The 2011-12 season is one Georgia Tech fans would like to erase from their memory banks. There was very little good to come out of the season, and I don't think Brian Gregory is at fault. He just didn't have anything on the roster outside of Glen Rice Jr. (who was ultimately suspended and kicked off the team), Mfon Udofia, and Kammeon Holsey. The Yellow Jackets finished 11-20 on the season, and 4-12 in the ACC, which was 11th out of 12 teams.

Just how bad was it for the Yellow Jackets? There were three instances in ACC player where they scored less than 40 points (38 against Virginia, 37 against Clemson, and 36 against Miami). They Yellow Jackets were 319th in points per game, and 302nd in assists per game (barely more than what Kendall Marshall averaged per game). The team also shot 65% from the free throw line.

Who Stood Out: After Rice was suspended, Kammeon Holsey really stepped up his game. Hosley scored double digits in six of the final nine games, and had his only double double in that stretch. Holsey's 59% shooting led the team by a sizable margin.

Looking Ahead: Rice is the biggest departure from the team. Nick Foreman and Pierre Jordan are gone as well, although they were backups who only played about 10 minutes a game. Their departures won't hurt as much.

Early Prediction: Having Udofia and Holsey back gives the Yellow Jackets a viable inside-outside presence. But outside of that, they will need some big time contributors in order to be competitive this year. Fortunately, the Yellow Jackets have a solid four person recruiting class coming in, and I think Marcus Hunt and Robert Carter will play right away. However, I still have big questions about this team's shooting ability, and because of that, I think they will be near the bottom of the conference again this year.
