@GTMBB stuns 9th ranked #UNC 75-63 to start the @GTJoshPastner era with huge #ACC win.
Josh Pastner arrived on the Ga Tech campus in Atlanta to mixed reviews. Some who followed his career at Memphis felt his teams under performed while he was there. Many here in Atlanta however felt the young former Arizona star would bring the energy and youth needed to help revitalize the once storied basketball program.
If the first half of the season is an indicator, the Yellow Jackets may have found their man. The GT men are 9-4, 1-0 in the ACC after their New Year’s Eve victory over the Tar Heels. Josh Okogie lead the way with 26 points, and bruising big man Ben Lammers posted a double double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Josh Heath and Quentin Jackson also were in double figures with 15 and 11 points respectively.
