Georgia Tech at North Carolina

The 2004-2005 Georgia Tech team was one of our favorite college hoops teams of this decade. Unfortunately for Yellow Jackets fans, they have not been able to reproduce that since then. Not for lack of pure talent, but for lack of a cohesive team. And perhaps more importantly, the absence of Jarrett Jack!

Georgia Tech started really good and gave UNC a headache, but their true selves came out later in the first half, and from there on, it was a walk in the park for UNC.

UNC is impressive on offense, but the question about UNC is not when they are scoring like crazy, but when they run into a team they have to beat on defense. Without stopped Marcus Ginyard, it will have to be a team effort. And judging by the career nights had by Greivis Vasquez, Ty Rice, and many others, UNC has not figured out how to do this yet.

The silver lining for Georgia Tech? They probably have the best 1-12 (record) team in the history of the ACC conference! ACC fans, was there ever a better 1-12 team? :-)
