Georgia Tech

The Acc

November 18, 2005|By HEATHER A. DINICH

Coach: Paul Hewitt, sixth season at school (99-66), ninth overall (162-93)

2004-05 record: 20-12, 8-8 (tied for fourth in ACC; NCAA second round)

Returning starters: None

Sun prediction: Losing record

Why it will happen: Forward-center Theodis Tarver is the only player on the roster with any prior starting experience. In addition to Tarver, guard Mario West is the only other upperclassman on scholarship. It's up to sophomore Zam Fredrick, who averaged 6.7 minutes last season, to run the point.

Why it might not: Several other teams experienced significant losses as well, and that could even the playing field. And though the Yellow Jackets are young, that doesn't necessarily mean they're not talented. Freshman guard Lewis Clinch is a highly touted recruit from Georgia who earned the reputation as a prolific scorer. And sophomore Ra'Sean Dickey, who made 62.1 percent of his field-goal attempts last season, has the potential to be one of the top centers in the conference.
