All-time starting five: Georgia Tech

The O List's all-time starting five for Georgia Tech basketball:

Mark Price G (1982-86): Tremendous shooter with the all-around game to go with it. Price (above), just 6-1, was a three-time all-ACC choice and the 1985 league’s top player. Averaged 36.5 minutes per game.

Roger Kaiser (1958-61): We’re going old school here, because Kaiser finished his career as a two-time all-American who owned 18 of GT’s 25 hoops records. A remarkable shooter who was ’61 SEC top player.

Dennis Scott (1987-90): The lynchpin of Lethal Weapon III, Scott (above) could fill it up from outside despite his 6-8 height. He was the 1990 ACC Player of the Year after averaging 27.7 ppg.

Matt Harpring (1994-98): At 6-8 and 225 pounds, Harpring (above) could score from the perimeter and bull around inside. Three-time all-ACC pick averaged 17.9 points and 8.0 rebounds for his career.

Rich Yunkus (1968-71): At 6-9, one of the early mobile centers. Yunkus could score at will on you, and finished his career with a 26.6 average, still the Yellow Jackets’ record.
