After stumbling midseason Georgia Tech assembled its late-season run and capped it by defeating North Carolina, Duke and Virginia in the ACC Tournament to win the championship. Then came the four-game sweep of the NCAA Southeast Regional, giving the Yellow Jackets a 28-6 record, the best ever for a Tech team.
During the season, "Lethal Weapon 3" was Tech's offense, averaging 78 percent of its points.
Kenny Anderson, Dennis Scott and Brian Oliver each averaged more than 20 points a game, a combined 69.6 points. It was the first time in the 36-year history of the ACC that three players on one team averaged 20 or more per game.
In defeating Minnesota 93-91 for the Regional championship in New Orleans, "Lethal Weapon 3" reached its apex. With Scott scoring 40 points, Anderson 30 and Oliver 19, the three accounted for 89 of Tech's 93 points and took 52 of 56 shots.
All season critics wondered when Tech's three-on-five game was going to run out of steam. It never did, until "Lethal Weapon 3" and its supporting cast met Nevada-Las Vegas for a spot in the national championship game, a scenario few would have believed possible for Tech when the season began.
