Cincinnati Basketball: Bearcats host Georgia Tech with chance to stay unbeaten

Cincinnati is fresh off a 90-66 win over Northern Kentucky to stay unbeaten but Georgia Tech could pose a legitimate threat as the programs meet up.

Georgia Tech is led by first-year coach and previous NBA star Damon Stoudamire, along with former SEC combo guards Amaree Abram and Kowacie Reeves.

In his freshman season at Ole Miss, Abram totaled 8.0 points and 2.0 assists per game, while Reeves posted 8.5 points and 2.6 rebounds at Florida.
