AMERICUS -- The South Georgia Tech men's basketball team got back to business Wednesday with a 93-63 rout of Middle Georgia Tech after a three-week break for the holidays.

But coach Steven Wright's Jets looked like they hadn't missed a beat as five players scored in double figures -- Vincent Cornu (16 points, 10 rebounds), Demario Fountain (16), Khiry White (12), Morris Mitchell (12) and David Wagner (10) -- as SGT improved to 12-2 overall and now stand a perfect 2-0 in region play.

Wright said he didn't see much rust.

"We were 2 for 13 from 3-point range, so that was a little off because we were shooting a 42-percent clip before the break, but other than that, we looked good," he said.

The Jets weren't ranked in the latest NJCAA poll, but Wright thinks they may be on the verge of cracking it.

"We haven't played the toughest non-conference schedule and I think (that hurts us) but I certainly think we have the potential to be one of the best Top 25 or 30 teams in the country."

SGT returns to action Saturday as it hosts conference foe Atlanta Metro at 4 p.m. in a game that will be preceded by the No. 8-ranked SGT women's (14-1) contest at 2 p.m.
