Maryland-Georgia Tech pre-game notes


***Join us in the Turtle Power live chat beginning at 7:45***

The Terps conclude their January schedule in Atlanta with a key road test against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Both teams stand at 3-3 in the ACC and can pull into a three-way tie for fourth with a victory at Alexander Memorial Coliseum.

Maryland (13-7, 3-3 ACC) will fight the temptation to look ahead to its return meeting with Duke — who was blown out by St. John’s at Madison Square Garden earlier Sunday — and attempt to become the first ACC team to beat the Yellow Jackets (10-9, 3-3 ACC) in their home building this season.

Georgia Tech, however, will be missing a key member of its rotation with Brian Oliver out with the flu. He scored 28 points off the bench in the Jackets’ impressive 15-point victory over Virginia Tech earlier in the week.

Tonight’s game will be televised on Fox SportsNet (Comcast SportsNet locally) with Tim Brando and Mike Gminski calling the action from Atlanta. Watch the action with us in the Turtle Power live chat and remember to follow us on Twitter (@WNST) for the quickest updates and analysis.
