THE FLATS -- Looking to even the season series and continue its recent dominance of North Carolina at home, Georgia Tech hosts the Tar Heels in a 9 p.m. regionally-televised Atlantic Coast Conference game Tuesday night at McCamish Pavilion. The contest finished a stretch of three games in six days for the Yellow Jackets.
Tech (14-10, 4-8 ACC) has four of seven games since an 0-5 start to the conference schedule, and the Yellow Jackets are coming off a 57-56 win Saturday at Wake Forest, their second straight ACC road win this season. Tech, which fell, 79-63, in the first meeting with the Tar Heels on Jan. 23 in Chapel Hill, is 10-4 at home this season, but just 2-4 at McCamish Pavilion in ACC games.
Tuesday's game can be heard over the Georgia Tech IMG Sports Network (790 AM, 106.7 FM in Atlanta), as well as satellite radio (Sirius Ch. xx, XM Ch. xx). The game is being televised on the ACC Network, including WATL-TV in Atlanta, and is also available online via ESPN3 outside the ACC footprint.
North Carolina (17-8, 7-5 ACC) has won seven of 10 games since beginning the ACC schedule with two losses. The Tar Heels defeated Virginia, 93-81, Saturday in Chapel Hill, snapping a two-game losing streak. Carolina is 3-6 on the road this year, 2-3 in conference play.
Tech, which earned its first ACC road win of the season last Saturday at Virginia Tech, completes a stretch of three games in six days when it hosts North Carolina at 9 p.m. Tuesday night.
