Georgia Tech

Not having B.J. Elder has really disrupted Georgia Tech's offense. Before he went down in the Kansas game, Tech was 9-1 with its one loss at a good Gonzaga team. Since then they have gone 3-3, with a quality loss (against North Carolina) and a quality win (Wake Forest). The loss that really hurt, though, was at home to the team who has to be the surprise of the year so far in ACC play, Virginia Tech.

Ga Tech has struggled at times to score, both this year and last year. Losing B.J. Elder, their second leading scorer, really hurt because it seemed to me that the threat of his shot opened up a lot of things for their half court offense. Adjusting to not having Elder has been hard, but it looks like Ga Tech is righting the ship. They are still less than a year removed from going to the Final Four, and will likely be a better team come March, especially since they have learned to play without one of their main players.
