Yellow Jackets gearing up for 2014-15 campaign

July 31, 2014

While many are wrapping up their summer vacations, the itinerary for Georgia Tech’s basketball team didn’t feature many beaches or cookouts while they prepared for the upcoming season.

Arrivals and departures have led to a roster makeover for Brian Gregory, who is entering his fourth season at Georgia Tech. The season tips off against Georgia at McCamish Pavilion on Friday, November 14. With the non-conference slate set, the ACC will announce the full schedule in August.

Here’s a glance at the current roster, which includes quite a few new faces:

Juniors Marcus Georges-Hunt and Chris Bolden are now the the elder statesmen of the program as third-year scholarship student-athletes.

Travis Jorgenson is returning after tearing his ACL just four games into his freshman campaign. Along with redshirt sophmore Corey Heyward, the duo forms the Yin & Yang of the Jackets’ backcourt.

They’ll be joined at point guard by incoming transfer Josh Heath, who has been granted immediate eligibility after putting up some strong numbers at South Florida last year.

Freshman guard Tadric Jackson brings some impressive credentials to The Flats after averaging nearly 19 points while leading Tift County to a state title. He’s the reigning state player of the year in Georgia.

In the frontcourt, sophomore Quinton Stephens is back, and Robert Sampson is ready to play after sitting out last season after transferring.

The Jackets welcome a trio of incoming post players transferring into the program. Demarco Cox, who scored 15 points and grabbed 13 rebounds against Tech last season, is a senior along with Nick Jacobs, a native of Atlanta. Charles Mitchell is also from the metro area and looks forward to being closer to home.

Freshman Ben Lammers provides some height up front at 6-10 and is hard at work rehabbing a knee injury.

The final member of the signing class also stands at 6-10. Senegal native Abdoulaye Gueye brings a versatile set of skills to table.

Season tickets for 2014-15 are now available, starting at just $350. New this year, fans that renew or purchase season tickets can opt-in for a two-year plan, saving up to $125 in the second year.
