More praise from Dickey V.

Nice comments about Hewitt, who has DV's vote for Coach of the Year so far.

From article:
If you have to select the best coaching job so far who would get your vote? Mine goes to Paul Hewitt. His Georgia Tech team has been sensational. No one had them on the radar for a Top 25 slot in the preseason. Yet, they won the preseason NIT beating Texas Tech in the championship and blowing out then-No. 1 Connecticut in the semifinals. How are they doing it? With brilliant perimeter play from B.J. Elder, Jarrett Jack and the explosive Isma'il Muhammad there is no downside. What impressed me is that Hewitt didn't pout and sulk after losing 6-10 Chris Bosh to the NBA after his freshman season. He didn't cry when Ed Nelson transferred to Connecticut. This team is no fluke.

Also note, Isma'il made it to Dickey V's "Slam, jam take it to the hoops team".
