ACC Roundup

A slow night and week with exams ending and holidays coming up.

Georgia Tech was a bit rusty after exams but still had little trouble with Kennesaw State, winning by 17. The Yellow Jackets also finally got Jason Morris back. The 6-5 senior has been out since October with a foot injury.

Kennesaw did rally late, cutting a 16 point Tech lead down to seven, but as usually happens in these games, Tech ripped off a good run (15-5) and the game was done.

We say usually because as you may remember many at Tech passed judgement on Paul Hewitt after losing to Kennesaw in 2010.

Incidentally, although we never learned why Solomon Poole moved into the starting lineup, Trae Golden is back at point. He hit 15 as did Robert Carter, who matched the points with 15 boards. Daniel Miller had 16 and eight. Marcus Georges-Hunt added 10.

Tech is currently 8-3 with a tough stretch coming up: Vandy, Charlotte, Maryland, Duke, Notre Dame and Pitt before Miami and BC might provide a breather.

That six-game stretch could really go a long way towards defining Tech's season.

On Tuesday, Wake hosts St. Bonnie's in a game the Deacs should win.

After an impressive turn in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, Charlotte will be an interesting opponent for FSU and one capable of winning. Florida State better not take the 49ers lightly like Michigan did.

And after playing a very light schedule to date, Pitt finally gets a tough opponent in Cincinnati, and on the road to boot.

Of course the teams are familiar with each other, both having been in the Big East until last year.
