The mystery is what happened to Chris Bolden and why is he suspended?
It was stated on ESPNU after the game that Brian Gregory was going to address this with the media following the win.
But it looks like Gregory wants to enjoy the win and deal with the Bolden suspension later, and rightfully so!
Chris Bolden has been suspended indefinitely. Brian Gregory said postgame “We have high expectations, and he hasn’t met those.”

Gregory says Chris Bolden is suspended indefinitely. Said he will make an official comment on his status later, sounds like he may be gone. — Kelly Quinlan (@Kelly_Quinlan) February 17, 2015
Without getting specific it looks like whatever happened has Chris Bolden gone from the tea for the foreseeable future.
Bolden had been playing some solid basketball for the Jackets of late. There will be something more official on Bolden’s status before the Jackets play North Carolina in Chapel Hill on Saturday.
Right now it is about Georgia Tech enjoying a much needed home win.
