@GTMBK - What's in a Number?

Oct. 8, 2014

THE FLATS – What’s in a number? We asked several Georgia Tech basketball players to tell us why they wear the jersey numbers they wear.

Two Tech players – Chris Bolden and Corey Heyward – changed the numbers they wore last season for the Yellow Jackets. Bolden switched from 11 to 2, while Heyward changed from 30 to 5.

Of Tech’s transfer players, only Demarco Cox (4) and Charles Mitchell (0) are wearing the same jersey numbers that they wore at their former schools. Josh Heath (11), wore No. 10 at South Florida, and Robert Sampson (13) wore 12 at East Carolina.
