GaTech Struggling To Find Offensive Groove
Maryland is not the only team that has struggled to find its collective shooting stoke on a consistent basis this season. Georgia Tech enters tonight's match-up ranked 11th in the ACC in shooting percentage (40.2 percent) since the start of conference play. One spot ahead of the Yellow Jackets in the same category are the Terps (40.5 percent). Read more about Georgia Tech's shooting woes here.
It seems the Yellow Jackets are fully capable rebounders and defenders. It's that pesky matter of putting the ball in the basket that has slowed them down. Georgia Tech ranks last in the ACC in scoring offense (67.6 ppg) since the start of conference play. Maryland ranks eighth (70.0 ppg).
But Georgia Tech's offensive deficiences have not curtailed its confidence heading into tonight's game. The Yellow Jackets blew a late double-digit lead the last time these two teams met (thanks in large part to committing 28 turnovers) and feel as though they should be at least one win better than their record (10-11, 1-7 ACC) indicates.
"We felt like we let one get away,” Georgia Tech Coach Paul Hewitt told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "And our guys are looking forward to playing them."
