VIDEO: Jacket Legend Will Bynum

Take a look back at the career of legendary point guard Will Bynum

After a year and a half in the program at Arizona, Will Bynum joined the Yellow Jackets and became eligible in the middle of the 2003-04 season. The Chicago native proved to be the final piece of the puzzle which propelled Georgia Tech all the way to the National Championship game in San Antonio, Texas.

The 6-foot guard practically willed the Jackets to many of their 28 victories, hitting a big layup in the final minute of the NCAA regional semifinal against Nevada in St. Louis, a three-point shot to break a 71-all tie in overtime against Kansas in the regional final, and the game-winning layup in the national semifinal against Oklahoma State.

He helped lead the Jackets back to the NCAA Tournament as a senior in 2005, then embarked on an eight-year NBA career. Bynum remains active today playing overseas, and has signed to play in the Big3 3-on-3 league this summer.
