GT News: From The Rumble Seat
Rivalry: Tied, 2-2
Streak: 2, Syracuse
Odds: Syracuse, -15.5
Last Meeting: The most recent meeting between the two teams occurred in the championship game of the Legends Classic in Atlantic City in 2010. No. 9 Syracuse survived a 32-point effort by Brian Oliver and won by four, though they didn't get credit for the win since Atlantic City, NJ is basically a suburb of Syracuse, NY.
Head Coaches: SU: Jim Boeheim (38th Year, 946-317); Georgia Tech: Brian Gregory (3rd Year: 40-51)
Last Year: GT finished the season 16–15 (6–12) in a tie for ninth place in the ACC. They lost in the first round of the ACC Tournament to Boston College and that was that.
Last Game: The Jackets lost their fourth in a row and sixth of their last seven games with an 81-71 loss to Florida State. Robert Carter Jr. scored 20 points in the loss.
Head Coach Bio: Gregory, the 13th head coach in Yellow Jacket history, coached eight seasons at Dayton where he compiled a record of 172-94 and took the Flyers to the post-season five times. His 2003-04 and 2008-09 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths, and the Flyers captured the 2010 NIT crown after beating North Carolina in the champion- ship game. So far, he's struggled to keep the Jackets above water in three seasons and will likely need to put the pieces together next year to improve his long-term prospects.
"Fear Me, I've Killed Hundreds Of Timelords": Daniel Miller is averaging 11.6 points and 7.7 rebounds (4th in the ACC) while hitting 53.9 percent of his shots in ACC games. Miller also ranks second all-time at Tech in blocks with 276 and is second among active ACC players in rebounds with 792. Trae Golden leads the balanced Georgia Tech offense with 12.7 PPG.
If Syracuse Wins…: The Orange will have done what they were supposed to do, which, isn't something we've been able to make too many assumptions about lately.
If Syracuse Loses…: Oh dear.
Fun Fact: Three current GT players and two Syracuse players were there the last time Syracuse and GT played. C.J. Fair and Baye Keita played for SU while Daniel Miller, Kammeon Holsey and Jason Morris all were there and carry vengeance in their hearts ever since.
Fun Fact 2: Almost one year ago today, the underdog Jackets upset No. 6 Miami. Have fun with that.
