THE FLATS – In the back end of a two-game road swing this week, Georgia Tech travels to face North Carolina for an 8 p.m. tip Saturday night at the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill. It is the second of two scheduled meetings between the two Atlantic Coast Conference teams this season, with the Tar Heels having won the first, 79-62, on Dec. 5 in Atlanta.
Tech (7-8, 1-4 ACC) stopped a three-game losing streak and earned its first ACC victory Wednesday night with an 81-76 win at Boston College. The defending ACC champion Jackets had lost at home to Louisville (67-64) and North Carolina and on the road to No. 2 Duke (69-57). Their Dec. 29 game at Syracuse was postponed.
Reigning ACC Tournament MVP Michael Devoe (Orlando, Fla.), the ACC’s second-leading scorer (20.5 points per game), No. 3 three-point shooter by volume (2.57 per game) and No. 2 by percentage (41.4), leads the Jackets along with senior forward Jordan Usher (Canton, Ga.), averaging 14.8 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.
North Carolina (11-4, 3-1 ACC) has won three of its last four games and eight of 10 following a 74-58 victory over Virginia at home last Saturday. Before that, the Tar Heels defeated Georgia Tech (79-62 on Dec. 5) and Boston College (91-65) before falling to Notre Dame (78-73) all on the road. North Carolina is tied for third place with Duke in the ACC standings.
Saturday’s game will be televised live on the ACC Network, with a 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 381, SiriusXM app 971).
