Georgia Tech, Georgia counting on experience

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech and Georgia are counting on large numbers of returning starters to lead turnarounds from disappointing 2011-12 seasons.

Each team opens practice on Friday.

Georgia Tech is the only Atlantic Coast Conference team to return all five starters. The Yellow Jackets were 11-20 in their first season under coach Brian Gregory, including a win at Georgia. Georgia Tech will open its new arena, McCamish Pavilion, after not having a true home court last season.

Georgia, which finished 15-17 last season, returns four starters. The Bulldogs' only departed starter is guard Gerald Robinson, the team's leading scorer. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was close behind Robinson in scoring as a freshman and is expected to be the team's top player this season.

Mark Fox is starting his fourth season as Georgia's coach.
