Georgia Tech Basketball Preseason: Brian Gregory likes ball movement, doesn't like team's rebounding

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory wants to see improved rebounding after the team's preseason performance.

As the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets open their season at 7 p.m. Friday against Tulane at home, coach Brian Gregory discussed several positives and negatives he has seen from the team to this point with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

First and foremost, Gregory has been impressed with how quickly the team's ball movement has progressed.

"I think our returning players have a better understanding of how important ball movement, ball reversal is, and then our freshmen just have a very good feel for the game so they kind of more instinctively just make the next pass, make that extra pass," Gregory said.

Gregory told reporters, however, that he has been displeased with the team's rebounding effort thus far.

"You have to get great defensive possessions," Gregory said. "For us, a defensive possession has to end with five guys on the defensive glass."

Gregory noted that getting better on the defensive glass should help create more transition baskets.
