Georgia Tech begins a three-game homestand Wednesday night by hosting 15th-ranked Miami for its Atlantic Coast Conference home opener, a regionally-televised game that tips off at 9 p.m. at McCamish Pavilion.
The Yellow Jackets (6-7), who have lost six of their last eight games, look to rebound from a 68-59 loss at Notre Dame in its ACC opener on Saturday. Tech is 5-3 at home this season. The Jackets are in their second season under head coach Josh Pastner, the 2017 ACC Coach of the Year, after going 21-16 and reaching the championship game of the NIT last season.
The Hurricanes (12-1, 1-0) started their conference schedule strong Saturday with a 67-53 win at Pittsburgh. Miami, in their seventh season under head coach Jim Larrañaga, suffered its only loss of the season on Dec. 23, a 63-54 defeat to New Mexico State in the second round of the Diamond Head Invitational. The Hurricanes rank No. 2 in the ACC in scoring defense and field goal percentage defense.
