“They were very excited and very happy,” coach Josh Pastner told the AJC. “They’ve been going through some tough times, some challenging times, some stuff with their family health-wise, so they all said they needed some good news. It was the right time for good news.”
It is a significant, if expected, break for Pastner and the Yellow Jackets. Tech is in dire need of Parham’s 3-point shooting ability and will similarly benefit from his playmaking skill. In the team’s four-game exhibition tour of Spain in August, Parham was off on his perimeter shooting, but had 13 assists, second most on the team.
