Tech’s roster is filled with experience, but the men’s basketball team’s fortunes will go the way of the talented freshmen sprinkled throughout the roster.
During my freshman year in 2009, Tech arguably had the greatest year in its sports history. All but three teams were ranked in the top 25 nationally. Football, softball, golf, and baseball won regular season ACC championships, while football, softball, and golf—maybe Tech’s most consistently talented program—won their postseason titles.
Maryland guard Sean Mosley scored 18 points while ACC scoring leader Terrell Stoglin chipped in 14 as the 12-4 Maryland Terrapins downed the 8-9 Jackets 61-50 in College Park, Md. The win over the Jackets was the Terrapins’ second conference win, giving them a 2-1 start while dropping the Jackets to 1-2 in the conference.
