Lance Terry commits, Georgia Tech adds Gardner Webb shooter

Lance Terry will look to become the next Big South transfer to make a splash in a Power 6 conference. The former Gardner Webb shooting guard will transfer to Georgia Tech.

Without Jose Alvarado and Moses Wright, Georgia Tech’s offense took a big step back this season. The Yellow Jackets finished No. 225 nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency, according to KenPom. This marks the fifth time in six seasons that one of Josh Pastner’s teams have finished outside the Top 175 in adjusted offensive efficiency.

Michael Devoe and Jordan Usher will head to the professional ranks now, too, which will complicated matters for next season. Terry, however, can help with his shooting abilities.

During his time with Gardner Webb, Terry appeared in 55 games (37 starts); he averaged 10.9 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. Terry’s also a 36.4 percent career 3-point shooter — on good volume: 53 percent of Terry’s field goal attempts have come from beyond the arc.

Terry played his best ball in the 2021-22 season, though: 31 starts, 14.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steals per game. He also shot 81 percent from the free throw line, too.

Back in Nov. 2021, Terry scored 15 points at Duke in an early-season non-conference matchup. That game followed a 16-point performance Terry had vs. Arkansas.
