Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 

The Yellow Jackets stumbled through their first 24 games this year, going just 9-15. Georgia Tech finished off the regular season on a better 5-2 run however, taking wins over Virginia Tech, Florida Tech, Louisville, Syracuse and Boston College. 

In Tuesday’s tournament game versus Florida State, Georgia Tech faced a 31-21 halftime deficit. The Yellow Jackets rallied on a 40-29 run from there and took the victory 61-60. Miles Kelly led the team on 21 points and Javon Franklin added 10 points with 19 boards. 

Pittsburgh Panthers 

Over on the Pittsburgh side, they held a decent 17-7 record over their first 24 games this year. The Panthers finished off the season on a sketchy 4-3 run, taking wins over Florida State, Boston College, Georgia Tech and Syracuse with losses to Virginia Tech, Notre Dame and Miami. 

In Saturday’s matchup versus Miami, the Panthers were down 42-38 by halftime. Pittsburgh got better from there but still lost 78-76. Leading the scoring was Blake Hinson with 24 points, and Nike Sibande added 16 points with five boards. 


I’ll probably stay with Pittsburgh in this one. You could make a case either way, though. The Panthers skidded into the finish line this year on a 2-3 stretch, but they’ve still been scoring pretty well. Pittsburgh has hit 72 or more points in eight straight outings. These teams have met twice this year, with Pittsburgh winning both times. First was a road victory 71-60 on January 14, then a February 21 win 76-68 at Petersen Events Center. Georgia Tech is playing better basketball these days and coming off a great comeback victory (with the same lineup receiving nearly all of the minutes). That said, I don’t think they’ll be able to hang around with Pittsburgh if the Panthers play well.
