#BuiltDifferent: Skill Sharpening Skill

Tech guards Alvarado, Devoe and Parham in skill work with assistant coach Anthony Wilkins

Georgia Tech returns eight of its top 11 scorers from last season, and six of those are perimeter players. That group is led by 6-foot junior point guard Jose Alvarado (12.5 ppg, 3.3 apg) and 6-4 sophomore Michael Devoe (9.7 ppg, 2.9 apg).

A major part of the Yellow Jackets’ summer workouts has been devoted to developing more scoring ability from those individuals, and assistant coach Anthony Wilkins has spent countless hours with groups of those perimeter players working with and against each other on the court. Here’s a look.
