The Boston College Eagles also need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are simply a below average basketball team that has been even worse on the road where they're being outscored by 7.2 points and averaging just 65 points per game. The Boston College Eagles have had their hiccups here and there, but they're outscoring teams by 11.1 points at home this season and have an explosive offense that can takeover games. The home team has also won seven of the last 10 meetings between Georgia Tech and Boston College. I'll lay the bucket.
