THE FLATS – Season tickets are now on sale for ACC Coach of the Year Josh Pastner’s second season on the Flats. The home slate features visits from NCAA Tournament teams Duke, Miami, Notre Dame, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest among the Georgia Tech’s nine home Atlantic Coast Conference games.
Clemson, NC State and Syracuse also visit McCamish Pavilion, where Tech won a program-record 17 games last season. Tennessee highlights a non-conference schedule which will be announced this summer.
The Yellow Jackets return their top three scorers – sophomore guard Josh Okogie, senior center Ben Lammers and senior guard Tadric Jackson – from a team which surpassed all pre-season projections by winning 21 games and advancing all the way to the championship game of the NIT. Along the way, the Jackets knocked off No. 9 North Carolina, the eventual national champion, No. 6 Florida State and No. 14 Notre Dame, as well as Boston College, Clemson, Pittsburgh and Syracuse in conference play.
Lammers, who ranked No. 2 in the nation in blocked shots and No. 4 in the ACC in rebounding, earned second-team All-ACC honors and was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. Okogie, who accumulated the third-most points of any Tech freshman in program history, was named to the ACC All-Freshman team.
“Our success last season was an unbelievable reflection of and a compliment to our fans throughout the season,” said Pastner. “For us to be able to do that, to get 17 home wins in year one of a major rebuild job is a direct reflection of our crowd. They willed us to victories all year long. I am so proud to have been associated with them, and we need their continued support to keep us moving forward.”
