Georgia Tech to lean on big men Miller, Holsey

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech's big men may be the team's best hopes for improved scoring in coach Brian Gregory's second season.

The Yellow Jackets won only 11 games, including a 4-12 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference, in Gregory's debut. Georgia Tech ranked 313th in the nation by scoring only about 60 points per game.

Center Daniel Miller and power forward Kammeon Holsey provided consistent scoring late last season.

Miller scored in double figures in eight of his last 10 games last season. Holsey had 10 or more points in six of his last nine games.

Gregory isn't expecting a dramatic offensive upswing this season. He says his focus on defense sets a lower scoring pace.

The team opens its new $50 million arena, McCamish Pavilion, against Tulane on Nov. 9.
