Prediction: Georgia Tech 65- Loyola-Chicago 63
It’s been a magical run for Georgia Tech and we think that runs continues for at least one more game. It’s something we didn’t talk about below but it’s 100% worth mentioning. Adversity, the Jackets are a highly experienced team and through the last few seasons have been through a ton of ups and downs and adversity. If there’s a team that can survive losing their conferences’s player of the year, it’s the Yellow Jackets. The Jackets despite losing Wright, still have quality scoring options including Jordan Usher who was on fire in the ACC Tournament. If he can carry on that play into Friday afternoon, that would be huge for the Jackets chances for a win. This is most definitely a very optimistic pick for this game considering the circumstances but sometimes you have to go with your gut. That’s what we’re doing here, give us the Yellow Jackets to advance to the round of 32.
