ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Tech basketball coach Paul Hewitt says
his Yellow Jackets will be ready to run with any team in the ACC
Hewitt left 5 a.m. wake-up calls for his players three times a
week in the offseason. Players reported to the track to run at 6
a.m., and Hewitt knows the Yellow Jackets will be in good shape for
their first practice on Friday night.
Georgia Tech lost seniors Anthony Morrow and Jeremis Smith. The
two were Georgia Tech's leading scorers, and Smith was the top
rebounder. Hewitt says he's concerned about rebounding. Gani Lawal,
Alade Aminu, Zack Peacock, transfer Bassirou Dieng and 7-foot
sophomore Brad Sheehan will contend for playing time on the front
line. Of that group, Aminu was the top rebounder last season with his
modest average of 4.1 per game.
