THE FLATS – Marcus Georges-Hunt missed the last game and a half of last season with a broken foot, but took it in stride and is ready to return to full activity on the court when the Yellow Jackets begin pre-season practice in September.
Georges-Hunt has established himself as a model Georgia Tech student-athlete who takes his basketball, academics and family seriously. The 6-5 senior has started all but one game in his career and has improved statistically each season in most every category. He made the ACC All-Academic team in 2013 and 2014, and owns career averages of 11.7 points and 4.8 rebounds per game, while hitting 35.3 percent of his threes and 69.9 percent of his free throws in conference play.
The College Park, Ga., native became the 43rd player in Tech history to reach 1,000 career points last season, and finished the season in 35th place on the Tech career list with 1,127 points (next up: Jim Nolan, who scored 1,136 points from 1946-49). He has scored in double figures in 63 of 94 games in his career (32 in ACC games).
