Georgia Tech basketball is here! In case you missed it, we previewed the season in full on Thursday, and now that season is a reality as the Presbyterian Blue Hose (yes, that’s their mascot) visit McCamish Pavilion on Friday night.
This is our first chance to see Trae Golden in a Yellow Jackets uniform, and that is probably worth the price of admission on its own. In addition, all of last year’s prominent freshmen (Marcus Georges-Hunt, Solomon Poole, Robert Carter, Chris Bolden, etc.) have had an entire off-season in the program to mature and improve, and this is an opportunity to monitor their progress.
As far as the opponent is concerned, Las Vegas hasn’t even issued a “line” for the game, which tells you a lot about what’s happening. Presbyterian went 8-24 overall (4-12 in the Big South Conference) last season, and the talent edge should be fairly drastic in favor of the Yellow Jackets.
Stay tuned for more information (and an upcoming recap when the game is completed), and it’s going to be a fun season!
