Georgia Tech is one of two ACC programs to lose its entire starting lineup in the off-season, but unlike North Carolina, which was devastated by four undergraduate defections, Yellow Jackets' coach Paul Hewitt was able to see his exodus coming.

"You get used to the idea that in college you're going to have turnover -- sometimes expected, sometimes not expected," Hewitt said. "We expected this kind of turnover, which is why we recruited the way we did last year."
