THE FLATS – Back home for the second time in three games, Georgia Tech hosts a streaking Notre Dame team at McCamish Pavilion for a 6 p.m. Saturday night tip. It is the first of two scheduled meetings between the two teams this season.
Tech (6-7, 0-3 ACC) is looking for its first ACC victory after coming up short Tuesday night at No. 2 Duke, 69-57 in Durham. The defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion Yellow Jackets have also lost at home to Louisville, 67-64 last Saturday, and North Carolina, 79-53 on Dec. 5. Their Dec. 29 game at Syracuse was postponed.
Reigning ACC Tournament MVP Michael Devoe (Orlando, Fla.), the ACC’s leading scorer (21.2 points per game) and No. 2 three-point shooter by volume (2.92 per game) and percentage (44.3), leads the Jackets along with senior forward Jordan Usher (Canton, Ga.), averaging 14.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
Notre Dame (8-5, 2-1 ACC) comes to Atlanta with four straight victories after holding off North Carolina, 78-73, Wednesday night in South Bend. That followed a 68-67 win at Pittsburgh on Dec. 28 and non-conference wins over Western Michigan and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi before Christmas. The Fighting Irish lost at Boston College, 73-57, on Dec. 3.
Saturday’s game will be televised live on the ACC Network, with the online live stream of the broadcast available through the ESPN app. Radio coverage will be on the Georgia Tech Sports Network by Legends Sports and flagship station WCNN (680/93.7 the Fan), and on satellite radio (XM channel 371, SiriusXM app 371).
