For the second time this season, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will play in front of a sold out crowd at home.
Despite being just one game over .500 and not having the season they hoped for, the Georgia Tech basketball team have sold out a home game for the second time this season.
On Monday night, it was announced that the Jackets home game on Sunday against the 18th ranked Clemson Tigers has been sold out. It’s the second straight sellout for the Jackets as well who sold out their game last week against Virginia, a 64-48 loss.
The Jackets sold out three games in 2016 when they took on Georgia, Notre Dame, and Syracuse last season at McCamish.
While the Jackets have played better of late despite back-to-back losses, bringing more fans down to McCamish, there is no doubt that the Jackets give away of replica Chris Bosh jerseys was a big drawing point for Sunday’s game. The first 2,000 fans on Saturday will receive the replica jersey.
Bosh played for the Jackets for one season, his freshman season in 2002-03. That season, Bosh played in 31 games, averaging 15.6 points and nine rebounds per game. He would go onto be drafted to be drafted with the 4th overall pick by the Toronto Raptors.
He would play for 13 seasons for the Raptors and Heat before having to retire from the game due to health issues. He will eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2021.
Before the Yellow Jackets take on the Tigers on Sunday, they will first take on the Florida State Seminoles first in Tallahassee on Wednesday night. The Seminoles are 14-5 entering Wednesday’s matchup. The Jackets won last year’s matchup over a ranked FSU team, 78-56.
