While there have been strides forward under head coach Brian Gregory the Yellow Jackets finished last season with a record of 16-17. Gregory will have his work cut out for him looking ahead to this season. Leading scorer from last year’s team Trae Golden graduated and highly touted recruit Robert Carter was lost due to a transfer.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets operate under Coach Brian Gregory at McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta. They’ve never won a championship but made it to the title game in 2004 behind B.J. Elder, Jarrett Jack, and Will Bynum. Overall they’ve made 16 NCAA Tournament appearances, most recently in 2010, but nine of them came in consecutive years between 1985 and 1993. They have a very up-and-down pattern since that time, making six Tournament appearances but only one pair of consecutive appearances. 36 Georgia Tech players went on to the NBA, including Jon Barry, Chris Bosh, Bynum, Derrick Favors, Jack, Anthony Morrow, Stephon Marbury, Iman Shumpert, and Thaddeus Young.
