Georgia Tech leaning heavily on freshmen scorers as it tries for winning season under Gregory

Brian Gregory believes his commitment to three freshmen starters will pay off for Georgia Tech in the future.

It hasn't been easy for Georgia Tech to win this year as the only Atlantic Coast Conference team with a freshman as its top scorer.

The Yellow Jackets' two leading scorers are freshmen Marcus Georges-Hunt and Robert Carter Jr. Chris Bolden, a strong 3-point shooter, is the third freshman starter.

Georgia Tech, which plays Maryland on Wednesday night, has lost two straight to fall to 14-12 overall and 4-10 in the ACC. A quick turnaround is needed for the Yellow Jackets to manage a winning record in Gregory's second season as coach.

Georgia Tech hasn't had two freshmen lead the team in scoring since Javaris Crittenton and Thaddeus Young in 2006-07.
