Devin Wilson is averaging 9 points per game along with a team-high 4.7 assists per game. The Hokies are an awful offensive team, averaging only 64.6 points per game while shooting 41.2% from the field as a team this season.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets improved to 14-16, 5-12 ACC after beating Syracuse on the road 67-62 on Tuesday night. On the year, the Yellow Jackets have been led by Trae Golden. Golden is averaging a team-high 13.1 points and 3 assists per game for Georgia Tech. Marcus Georges-Hunt is averaging 12 points per game, while Daniel Miller is averaging 7.8 rebounds per contest. The Yellow Jackets are shooting 43.7% from the field while averaging 66.7 points per game as a team this season. Georgia Tech is a good rebounding team, averaging 36.1 boards per game. The Yellow Jackets have been inconsistent all year, having bounced back after just losing four straight games for the first time this year, but they have not won two games in a row in conference play this year. Georgia Tech will be at home for senior night and their last home game of the season.
Georgia Tech will be pumped up for their last home game and senior following a huge win over Syracuse earlier in the week. Virginia Tech has been awful all year and I believe they will lose on the road to finish up their season. I’ll take the Yellow Jackets to win, but I think the Hokies will cover on Saturday.
