Has scored in double digits in seven of his last 10 games, and 12 times over Tech's first 18 games of the season. Last season he finished as Tech's second-leading scorer (11.7 ppg) and No. 4 rebounder (4.3 rpg).
Fun Fact: Georgia Tech's 28 points against Virginia are the fewest points the Yellow Jackets have ever scored in an ACC game. Their 12 points in the 2nd half are also they fewest they've ever scored in a single half of an ACC game. By comparison, Georgia Tech scored 35 vs. Virginia when the two schools met in football back in November.
