Year four of the Josh Pastner era of Georgia Tech basketball is right around the corner and the Jackets will start the season with a tough November slate.
The 2019-20 season is none of the most important seasons of Georgia Tech basketball in recent memory. Despite the Jackets not being able to play in the NCAA Tournament this season with a postseason ban, Josh Pastner will need to have his best coaching season if he hopes to keep his job as many believe that he’s on the hot seat entering this season.
The Jackets have arguably the most talented roster of the Josh Pastner era this season but can the team stay motivated this season especially late this season without the potential of playing in the postseason no matter how well they do. If Pastner can keep the Jackets motivated, they very well could sit in the middle of the ACC this season with strong play.
That being said, the season starts with a tough November schedule for the Yellow Jackets consisting of three quality opponents. They’ll start the season off this Friday against the North Carolina State Wolfpack before taking on Elon, Georgia, and Arkansas over the next four weeks.
