The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets dropped to 12-12, 3-8 ACC after losing at home to Virginia 64-45 on Saturday. On the year, Trae Golden is averaging a team-high 13.4 points and 3.1 assists per game. Marcus Georges-Hunt is averaging a second-best 12.2 points per game, while Daniel Miller is averaging 8 rebounds per contest. The Yellow Jackets are averaging only 67.5 points per game while shooting 43.4% from the field as a team this season. Georgia Tech is an average rebounding team, pulling down 36.3 boards per game. The Yellow Jackets have dropped two straight and six of their last eight overall. Georgia Tech will be at home for this game on Wednesday; the Yellow Jackets have lost their last four home games dating back to mid-January.
Both of these teams are struggling in conference play right now, but that is not surprise as both teams did not have high expectations coming into the season. Georgia Tech has lost four straight at home to good teams in the conference. Boston College has been awful on the road and I think their struggled will continue at Georgia Tech.
