ATLANTA – Georgia Tech senior Lewis Clinch is academically ineligible to participate in basketball and will not be available to play for the Yellow Jackets during the fall semester, head coach Paul Hewitt announced Friday.
The 6-3 guard from Cordele, Ga., can regain his eligibility following the semester, which ends Dec. 12. Tech has seven regular-season games as well as tonight’s exhibition game scheduled before then.
Clinch started 14 of Tech’s 32 games last year and averaged 9.0 points per game.
