Coach Julian Swartz works to make sharpshooting soph Kristian Sjolund a more well-rounded player
The hallmark of Georgia Tech basketball under head coach Josh Pastner has been player development, and all three Yellow Jacket assistant coaches have worked the maximum number of hours allowed over the summer on the floor with all the players improving their skill sets. Assistant coach Julian Swartz is working to help make sophomore forward Kristian Sjolund, an excellent athlete and shooter, into a more well-rounded player.
The 6-7 Sjolund played extensively over the Yellow Jackets final eight games of last season, hitting 13 of 35 three-point attempts and averaging 6.8 points per game. On the team’s recent trip to Spain, Sjolund averaged nearly eight points and four rebounds per game and scored more inside the paint than out.
Season tickets are on sale for 2019-20. With the new 20-game ACC schedule beginning in 2019-20, Yellow Jacket fans will see 10 conference home games, with defending national champion Virginia, Duke, Notre Dame, Syracuse and Louisville, as well as Miami, NC State, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech, coming to McCamish Pavilion. The Razorbacks visit Tech on Nov. 25, while the Jackets host the Cornhuskers on Dec. 4 for the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Prices start at $290, which is less than $15 per game and represents a significant savings from single-game ticket prices.
