Offseason[edit]

  • April 9: Georgia Tech broke ground Thursday on a 20,000-square-foot (1,900 m2) basketball practice facility which will be called the Zelnak Center. The facility was spurred by a lead gift from Steve and Judy Zelnak, the facility will be built at a cost of $5 million and be open in time for the beginning of pre-season practice in October. Zelnak is chairman, president and chief executive officer of Martin Marietta Materials in Raleigh, N.C.[1]
  • April 28: In less than one week, the Georgia Tech women's basketball team will embark on an 11-day foreign tour to Tunisia and Paris. The Yellow Jackets will depart Saturday, May 2, and arrive in Tunisia the following day. The Jackets will spend the first six days of their trip in Port EL Kantaoui, Tunisia where they are scheduled to play an exhibition game against the Tunisian U-20 National Team and two games against the Tunisian National Team.[2]
  • May 4: The Yellow Jackets opened a 46-18 halftime lead on the U-20 Tunisian National Team. Deja Foster scored a team-high 10 points in the first 20 minutes. The final score was Georgia Tech 77-35. The Jackets finished with 25 steals. Some of the top Tech performances include:[3]
