2014 ACC Tournament: Georgia Tech to open with Boston College

Most of the seedings for the 2014 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament have been set, and Georgia Tech will open play against the Boston College Eagles on day one, in the third game of the session.

Date: 3/12/14

Game Time: 7 pm EST

Venue: Greensboro Coliseum – Greensboro, N.C.

Records/Seeds: Boston College #14 (8-22, 4-13 ACC)  Georgia Tech #11 (15-16 , 6-12 ACC)

Current Odds: N/A

Injuries: GT: Travis Jorgensen – Out For Season (knee), Jason Morris – Out indefinitely (foot); Boston College: Darryl Hicks – Out for Season (knee)


The Yellow Jackets have drawn a team who they were able to sweep during the regular season to open the the ACC Tournament, beating Boston College 68-60 on Jan. 21 in Chestnut Hill, and then pulling out a close one at McCamish, 74-71 in a game that had been postponed by Atlanta’s snow storm.

With the Yellow Jackets as healthy as they’ve been all year, and riding a two-game winning streak coming into the tourney, they should be able to handle the struggling Eagles.

Bigs Daniel Miller and Robert Carter, Jr. are playing some of the best ball they have all year, and it’s certain that Miller and fellow senior starter Trae Golden want to go out fighting as they close out their careers.

Should the Jackets advance from day one action in the tournament, they would move on to face the #6 seed Clemson Tigers, a team the Yellow Jackets played tough twice, but came up short in both games this year.
