Happy Monday morning.

Plenty was reported in this space over the weekend – spring practice, men’s and women’s basketball, Marcus Georges-Hunt getting back in the NBA and a former Tech lineman running his first marathon. A rundown…

Sunday, former Tech star Marcus Georges-Hunt got the call back to the NBA.

Earlier Sunday, former Tech lineman Trey Braun completed the Rome Marathon, an achievement for anyone, but particular for a man who once weighed nearly 300 pounds and was accustomed to running 10 yards at a time, not 26.2 miles. The story of why he was running in the first place.

From the WNIT final in Detroit on Saturday, a heartbreaker for the Tech women’s basketball team.

Saturday, Tech quarterback Matthew Jordan completed his first week of spring practice as the No. 1. How the view looked to him.

Coach Paul Johnson weighed in with his evaluation of the first full-pads practice, including who stood out.

Basketball coach Josh Pastner granted the AJC behind-the-scenes access to the team’s preparations for the NIT championship. This is what it looked like.

Plus, published a couple weeks ago but relevant today. North Carolina will play Gonzaga Monday night for the national championship. If they cut down the nets, the Tar Heels will owe gratitude to the Jackets.
