Georgia Tech's Paul Hewitt: Head Coach Q&A

October 8th, 2008

College Basketball's Best Coaches is lucky to have access to some of the best coaches in college basketball. As part of our preseason interview series, we thought it would be appropriate to ask these basketball minds about the best things that their team and college basketball has to offer.


Paul Hewitt: Georgia Tech

We continue this month long Q&A Series with 9th year Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt, who has led the Yellow Jackets to 4 NCAA Tournaments. Coach Hewitt was kind enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to answer questions for What will be the best strength of this year's team?


Paul Hewitt) We can really shoot the basketball.



CHN) Who are the biggest leader on this year's squad?


PH)  I think we have a core of good leaders in D'Andre Bell, Zack Peacock and Moe Miller. So I think we have some good leaders on this team.



CHN) What's the best change you've made in your coaching style in recent seasons?


PH) Being more patient with freshmen.



CHN) If everything goes according to plan, what's the best case scenario this season?


PH) We can be one of the best three or four teams in the ACC.



CHN) What's the best arena you guys play at in the ACC?


PH)   I guess you've got say to Duke. They have really good players, and they get their fans into the game.


Coach Hewitt also wanted us to mention that Tech fans and anyone in the Atlanta region should get involved with Project Success sponsored by the 100 Black Men of Atlanta (they mentor kids from 9th to 12th grade), as well as HERO for Children and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta.
