Josh Pastner, head coach of Georgia Tech men's basketball team, joined Sam Crenshaw and Greg Clarkson to talk about the season of the Yellow Jackets and how it, unfortunately, ended with the Coronavirus. Before he spoke about the season, Clarkson asked him about college seniors and if they should have another year of eligibility. Coach Pastner said that
"I think it's a big difference between winter sports, which is men's and women's basketball, and spring sports; which is track & field and baseball." He thinks that the extra year eligibility for winter sport seniors should not be extended because their regular season was over and spring sports seniors should because their season did not start. 


The Yellow Jackets did not have a bad season. They finished 17-14 and 11-9 in conference play. Sam Crenshaw asked Coach Pastner if he could flashback on the season that the Yellow Jackets had. Coach Pastner was really proud of his young men and how they finished, even though they were eliminated from tournament play. He talked about GA Tech finishing fifth place in the ACC by themselves, toughest conference according to Pastner.
