Georgia Tech vs NC State
This past week, Georgia Tech yellow jackets upset the men’s basketball team of NC State, with the help of the junior star-guard Jose Alvarado and his impressive 26-point performance. His two steals, as well as James Banks’s two steals and two shots respectively in the dying moments of the game, made sure Jackets sealed the deal.
Yellow Jackets currently have 9 wins and 11 losses, and despite some impressive performances against teams with higher ranks, especially against Number 2 of Duke, and Number 14 of Louisville, still saw Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have a struggling season. In a conference with national powerhouses, the Jackets have found themselves in the lower-middle of the fray, ultimately finding some trouble in competing against top tier opponents.
While Jackets, and their stars are no strangers to making clutch plays when it counts, and this NC State game is surely a glimpse of their abilities, they still need to up their game if they want to challenge for the higher ranks.
