After successive street routes, Georgia Tech (12-8, 8-6 ACC) will now try to keep its The NCAA tournament against another team trying to get into a bubble fight is intact Tech and Syracuse (13-7, 7-6 ACC) have already played ACC games in the late season (2014, 2017, 2020)Rarely have they felt as pitched as this one, as both teams were separated by half a game in the ACC classification. Their last matchups also showed a lively mixture of runs, comebacks, wild swings and unexpected appearances

That should just add to a feverish atmosphere at the McCamish Pavilion in late February, as we prepare for the tip, enjoy the top five grades from the table to prepare for Saturday’s matchup in Atlanta (12 S) m ET, Georgia Tech Sports Network from Learfield IMG College):

Don’t expect a “Josh Pastner Game” this Tuesday. The opponent of the yellow jackets, No. 16 Virginia Tech (14-4, 8-3 ACC) has emerged as a surprise ACC team and emerged from an 11th Place in the conference in the preseason developed into a solid NCAA tournament team The Hokies are also 5-0 in the ACC game at the Cassell Coliseum – and Tech is only 1:10 in Blacksburg

However, since Jan. No longer played February when program was suspended due to a positive COVID test It’s hard to guess exactly how a team will play after a long hiatus – Georgia Tech emerged from a 16-day layoff, drilling 16 threes in a router from Clemson, but Louisville came back from an 18-day hiatus this weekend and got drilled by 45 points in North Carolina

Wherever you sit on the bench on Tuesday, take a seat It’s likely a battle Enjoy the top notes from my table as you prepare for another big impact game for the yellow jackets NCAA tournament (7S) m ET, Georgia Tech Sports Network from Learfield IMG College):

Georgia Tech defended 57 possessions against Virginia Tech on Tuesday, The jackets played on 56 of them Zone, It wasn’t until the final game of the first half that Tech switched to a man-to-man

The commitment paid off: The Jackets considered the Hokies to be their third worst offensive rating of the season (0) 93 PPP) Josh Pastner still prefers mixing and multiple defenses, and that could come in handy if a free flowing one Syracuse offense shoots far more dangerous than its numbers (10 ACC FG%, 9 ACC 3pt)%) While it is partly a function of both teams who play short rotations, the game on Saturday features 6 of the 12 top goal scorers in the ACC:

Boeheim and Joe Girard III (100 ppg) have the permanent green light, can fly curls and handovers and rain deep threesomes Boeheim leads the ACC with three pointers made per game, but Girard is perhaps the bigger bang: the second player had one High and low seasons and has only scored five points in his last two games but he can open the floor significantly if he’s in rhythm.Besides Boeheim and Girard, there are guards like Griffin and freshman Kadary Richmond (72 ppg) can isolate defenders and them The 6-7 Guerrier gives Syracuse a battering ram driver and a tenacious offensive rebounder (No. 3 ACC OR / g)

The Orange are 20 points behind each of the last two games, despite teaming up last weekend to stun Notre Dame, they will no doubt be looking for a sharp, engaging and contagious shooting start this Saturday, with the jackets solidly defending on screens , step behind the orange in the defensive transition, get defensive first chance rebounds and make Syracuse feel on the edge like they did with the Virginia Tech shooters?

In a six-game section from Jan. January to 10 February Moses Wright shot only 395% off the field

The senior achieved a career high of 33 points in Syracuse last year and showed a gentle touch on the foul border and a willingness to drive to the edge. His ability to be a zone buster of the “5” could be critical again on Saturday his

However, he has fierce competition for another prestigious award: “ACC player who feels like he’s in the league forever””

Apart from Alvarado, no player deserves this status more than Marek Dolezaj, Syracuse’s Reed, 6-10 year old strikerOne of the best glue in the ACC, Dolezaj (113 ppg, 53 rpg) almost single-handedly saved the orange last season From an 11-point halftime deficit in the dome, he repeatedly bombed a ball screen to the brim and made contact, resulting in a perfect 12-of-12 night on the foul line

Dolezaj has played from position with an injured starting center Bourama Sidibe, but he can still cause inconsistencies with his passing, screening and open play (it’s worth noting Georgia Tech doesn’t play a conventional “5” man either) He’s a Josh Pastner favorite for his hectic, high-motor games, and both he and Guerrier will be relentlessly chasing the rebounds. Pastner’s “50-50 ball” chart can be closely watched on Saturday
After a mid-season hiatus, Georgia Tech’s three-point shooting has improved lately, with the jackets hooked up to 413 percent of their attempts in the last two games (19 of 46), given a 2-3 zone, it seems so A Welcome Development – Syracuse Enforces Highest Volume of Three-Point Attempts in ACC Game Annually, Georgia Tech has been responsible for four of the seven lowest three-point odds against Syracuse for the past three seasons

Getting open threesomes will still be key, of course, but Georgia Tech can’t stare at passes as it tries to crack the Syracuse zone, the Orange likes to sit on passes, with Richmond – who ranks third on steals at the ACC occupies, although he only averages 217 minutes per game – especially adept at anticipating gaps and shooting

Syracuse fans have been grumbling about the Zone’s ineffectiveness lately, and Jim Boeheim has urged strikers Guerrier and Griffin to defend more vigorously, yet the Orange leads the ACC on steals and ranks second behind Georgia Tech in terms of revenue share Play the jackets through the elbows with balance and patience and force rotations so that they are not swallowed up by Syracuse’s length?

As a high school junior, Alan Griffin lost in the New York State intersectional semifinals to Khalid Moore’s Archbishop Molloy, the 6-5-year-old security guard, son of nine-year-old NBA veteran and current assistant to the Toronto Raptors, Adrian Griffin, played his first two Years at Oak Park River Forest High School while his father served on the Chicago Bulls staff

This high school may sound familiar to me: it’s the alma mater of the great Iman Shumpert of Yellow Jacket

And yes, the Orange have both a player named Alan Griffin and an assistant coach named Allen Griffin who also played at Syracuse

Now that we’re prepared, we hope you are too. Join us for pre-game coverage from 11:30 am on the Georgia Tech Sports Network from Learfield IMG College, See you at McCamish
