Comments on the team from ESPN

Excerpt on GT:
Like Missouri, Georgia Tech is already a team playing well and doesn't necessarily need to tinker with what's working so well. But the Yellow Jackets added former Arizona guard Will Bynum (six points, three assists in 18 minutes in Saturday's win over Saint Louis).

Yes, the Yellow Jackets were already loaded on the perimeter with B.J. Elder, Isma'il Muhammed and Jarrett Jack. But Bynum, a scoring guard, will certainly give the Yellow Jackets even more depth. He just has to accept his role and not come in and try to be a star.

The pressure is off him, just like it is for Conley and Pulley.

"Will has been great," Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt said. "He has watched us be successful and isn't doing anything dramatic. He just wants to fit in and it has been great for Jarrett Jack for practice. He adds more ballhandling, better pressure on the ball and he will free up B.J. Elder to be a big-time scorer. "There is going to be a certain amount of rust. Will's handle wasn't as tight. It's a matter of getting back in game shape. He got winded at the end Saturday. Not sure if that's nerves."
