Georgia Tech’s opponent set for ACC tournament

Georgia Tech will play in the first game of the ACC men’s tournament, which begins Tuesday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C.

The Yellow Jackets will face Boston College at 1 p.m. The Eagles defeated the Jackets 64-62 at McCamish Pavilion on Jan. 25. In that game, Tech trailed 59-52 with 3:58 remaining. The Jackets scored the next seven points to tie the score with 1:28 to play, but the rally fell short.

Tech will play without its leading scorer, Marcus Georges-Hunt. He suffered a broken bone in his right foot Tuesday night against North Carolina.

Tech will be the No. 13 seed and Boston College No. 12. The winner of their game will meet North Carolina, the No. 5 seed, at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Georgia Tech forward Marcus Georges-Hunt, whose season is over after breaking his foot on Tuesday, said that "It's been a rough season" but that he wants to go back and look at game video to see what he could have done better. (ASSOCIATED PRESS)
