What to Know
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are 0-4 against the Georgia Bulldogs since December of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap on Wednesday. They will face off against one another at 7 p.m. ET at Stegeman Coliseum. After these two teams made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.
If there were any doubts about the heavy odds in favor of Georgia Tech coming into their contest against the Elon Phoenix last Monday, the squad laid those doubts to rest. In a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 29 turnovers, Georgia Tech took down Elon 64-41.
Meanwhile, UGA took their matchup last week with ease, bagging a 100-66 win over the Delaware State Hornets. Georgia’s F Rayshaun Hammonds was one of the most active players for the team as he posted a double-double on 26 points and 14 boards.
Their wins bumped the Yellow Jackets to 2-0 and the Bulldogs to 3-0. Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
