Georgia Tech's ACC basketball struggles continue in 2015

AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA (AP) - Once the proud home of Final Four teams, Georgia Tech has become the ACC's punching bag.

Disappointing doesn't truly describe the Yellow Jackets, who are last in the Atlantic Coast Conference. They are 0-7 in the ACC, the Yellow Jackets' worst conference start since 2002.

But it isn't an aberration. Georgia Tech, which plays at Miami on Wednesday night, has only one winning conference record in the last 19 seasons.

Their recent woes could threaten coach Brian Gregory's job security.

Gregory's first four years at Georgia Tech haven't come close to the glory of the 1990 "Lethal Weapon 3" Final Four team that featured Kenny Anderson, Dennis Scott and Brian Oliver. Recent recruiting hasn't produced talent similar to the 2004 Final Four team led by Jarrett Jack and Will Bynum.
