Stymied by the Iowa Hawkeyes' swarming defense, Georgia Tech found itself out of options.
The "Stegeman Curse" continues for Georgia Tech's basketball team, and Georgia has a trio of former Gwinnett high school stars to thank for it. Wesleyan grad Trey Thompkins scored 20 points and pulled down six rebounds, while Parkview's Ricky McPhee scored 16 points and North Gwinnett's Ebuka Anyorah gave quality minutes off the bench to extend the Bulldogs' homecourt supremacy over the Yellow Jackets to 13 straight games with a 73-66 upset before a disappointingly small crowd of 6,275 on Tuesday night.

Now that his shoulder is finally healthy, Troy Glaus is ready to learn a new position and regain his power stroke.
