The Jackets wont go undefeated this year that is guaranteed. After beating Purdue in the first round, and then #11 Memphis in the semifinals, the young Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fell to #5 powerhouse UCLA in the final game of the Maui Invitational on Wednesday night. Not much good to say about last night's game. Sloppy play, alot of turnovers, alot of forced shots. We have to remember that we have 3 freshmen starters in the lineup and it kind of showed a little last night. Thaddeus Young still hasnt lived up to the billing that rated him #3 nationally in most rankings, but when he does this team should grow up quickly. Ra'Sean Dickey continues to be Ra'Sean Dickey where he hasnt met a shot he didnt like. All in all, i am happy and proud of the work this team did in this tournament. Again, we are starting 3 freshmen, and this team will mature come ACC play. I hope Coach Hewitt keeps the team in Hawaii to enjoy their Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Go Jackets. Next game Tuesday in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge against Penn State.
