Tech Basketball Teams Hosting Open House Sunday

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech’s basketball teams will welcome fans and students into McCamish Pavilion for a fun-filled day of meet-and-greet sessions, basketball clinics, Halloween activities and more at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30. Doors open at 2 p.m. at all three entrances of McCamish Pavilion, and t-shirts will be given away to the first 1,000 fans who enter.

Head coaches Josh Pastner and Nell Fortner, their staffs and entire teams will be on hand to meet the crowd. The day begins with introductions of both coaches by Tech radio voice Andy Demetra, and a short chalk-talk session with each head coach, followed the introduction of student-athletes from both teams. After introductions, fans and students are invited to participate in basketball drills on Bobby Cremins Court, Halloween fun with Tech’s spirit teams in the Freshman Gym and photo opportunities in the Zelnak Center practice facility.

Parking is available beginning at 1 p.m. in the McCamish Pavilion lot and the Family Housing deck on 10th Street. Fans are encouraged to sit in sections 108-110. Food and drink will be offered at selected concession stands, and representatives from the ticket office will be on hand to assist attendees interested in purchasing tickets for the 2022-23 season.

Fans participating in basketball drills are required/asked to complete this waiver beforehand.

The Tech men open their home schedule on Monday, Nov. 7 against Clayton State, and the women entertain Georgia State on Thursday, Nov. 10, to tipoff their home slate.

The Yellow Jacket men return eight letterwinners for Pastner’s seventh season on The Flats, including senior point guard Kyle Sturdivant (Norcross, Ga.) and senior center Rodney Howard (Ypsilanti, Mich.) who are Tech’s top two returning scorers. The Jackets’ core includes a trio of rising sophomores in Dallan “Deebo” Coleman (Memphis, Tenn.), Miles Kelly (Stone Mountain, Ga.) and Jalon Moore (Birmingham, Ala.), junior point guard Deivon Smith (Loganville, Ga.) and two transfers.

Fortner welcomes back seven letterwinners, including senior center Nerea Hermosa (Vitoria, Spain) and junior wing Eylia Love (Kansas City, Kan.) from last season’s squad that went 21-11 overall and made its second consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Additionally, the Yellow Jackets welcome six newcomers to the roster, including a pair of transfers.
