Georgia Tech will play Clemson in its second-round matchup of the ACC tournament Wednesday at 7 p.m. By virtue of their defeat of Pittsburgh Saturday, the Yellow Jackets clinched the No. 10 seed and will be opposite the No. 7 seed Tigers in the bracket, set Saturday night following the completion of the ACC regular-season schedule.

It will be the third game of the season between Tech and Clemson following a regular-season split. The winner will play No. 2 seed Virginia on Thursday, also at 7 p.m, in a quarterfinal. Tech beat the Cavaliers 68-64 at McCamish Pavilion Jan. 9.
