Tech Drops S.E. All-Stars, 112-75

Nov. 10, 2003

Box Score

ATLANTA – Luke Schenscher had 20 points, 12 rebounds and six blocked shots to lead Georgia Tech to a 112-75 victory over the Southeast All-Stars Monday at Alexander Memorial Coliseum at McDonald’s Center in the Yellow Jackets’ final exhibition game.

Schenscher, who made 7-of-14 from the floor and 6-of-7 from the line, was one of six players to score in double figures for Tech, which opens the regular season on Nov. 18 with a home game against Louisiana-Lafayette at 7 p.m. in the first round of the Preseason NIT.

“Luke is a better player,” said Tech head coach Paul Hewitt. “I think he was more frustrated with his play last year than I was. He’s a hard worker, and he’s much improved. He can handle his weight much better now.”

Marvin Lewis had 18 points for the Jackets, Isma’il Muhammad scored 15, Jarrett Jack and Clarence Moore contributed 13 each and Robert Brooks added 10 points.

Tech shot 48.8 percent from the field while holding the Southeast All-Stars to just 33 percent and outrebounding them 63-48.

“In preparation for next week’s game, there were some things defensively that we tried to concentrate on, and we did those things,” said Hewitt. “Now it’s just a matter of getting six good practices in and getting ready for Louisiana-Lafayette.”

Wallace Prather led the Southeast All-Stars with 21 points, including five three-pointers.

Schenscher scored 14 points and Moore 12 as Tech built a 63-43 halftime lead. The Southeast All-Stars actually led 27-26 midway through the first half after consecutive treys by Prather, but then Tech reeled off 11 straight points to build a 10-point lead. The Jackets extended the lead to 51-31 with four minutes in the half, and the lead never fell below 17 points after that.
