Now that 13 games worth of Georgia Tech Men’s Basketball has been played, we should have a pretty good idea of what kind of team head coach Brian Gregory is working with, and we definitely have learned some things about this team going into conference play.

The Yellow Jackets are 9-4 which is pretty impressive considering that most experts had the Yellow Jackets barely finishing over .500 for the season, so this is a really good start.

Some of the same flaws seen in the past are still rearing their ugly heads on occasion with this team, but there are a lot of good things going on as well. The important thing is that the problems are all things that can be fixed with some good coaching and hard work.

The entrance into conference play this season won’t be easy for the Jackets, with two away games at Maryland and Duke, and then coming home to welcome ACC newcomers Notre Dame and Pittsburgh to McCamish Pavilion. Those four games will tell as much about how well the Jackets are prepared for the rigors of the ACC as anything we’ll see this season.

But for now, here’s a look at some of the good and bad that we know about the Yellow Jackets right now.
