On Sunday afternoon, the Georgia Tech Basketball team will return to the court to take on the Florida A&M Rattlers. Here are four players to watch during Sunday’s matchup.
Georgia Tech (4-4) will look to snap a three-game losing streak on Sunday afternoon as they welcome the Florida A&M Rattlers to McCamish Pavillion. The Rattlers enter Sunday’s matchup with a 1-12 record and have yet to defeat a Division I opponent.
The Jackets on Sunday will already be without Josh Okogie as he works his way back from a finger injury. Center Ben Lammers has been nursing an ankle injury for the last month now but has had an extended break to rest his ankle and get back into form. Lammers most likely won’t be 100% on Sunday but should be looking better.
That being said, Sunday’s matchup could be a chance for the Jackets to get back into a groove both offensively and defensively. After dropping games to Grambling, Tennessee, and Wofford the Jackets are in a must-win situation on Sunday. A loss to Florida A&M would be the worst of their season and would leave plenty of questions about where the Jackets truly are as a program.
While the Rattlers are not a highly talented squad, they present their fair of challenges including two you will read about it shortly. The Yellow Jackets offensively will obviously not have Okogie available and without Lammers be 100%, will need the rest of the team to show. With that being said, here are four players to watch on Sunday.
