THE FLATS – As the 2023-24 season draws near, Georgia Tech women’s basketball has announced its season-opener on Nov. 6 as “Education Day.” The Yellow Jackets have partnered with Atlanta Public Schools and Buzzer Readers to bring over 3,000 elementary school kids to the game versus Coastal Carolina. Tip-off is set for 11 a.m.
Buzzer Readers is Georgia Tech women’s basketball’s initiative to promote and encourage children to learn through reading. All elementary school students from Atlanta Public Schools were eligible to participate in this year’s Buzzer Readers competition, which took place between Sept. 5-Oct. 5. Students who read the most minutes from each school were gifted the opportunity to partake in Georgia Tech’s opening game on Nov. 6. Individual top readers from grades K-5 will be recognized during the game, as well as top classroom winners.
During the month-long competition, Georgia Tech women’s basketball student-athletes, along with Tech spirit squad members and Buzz, visited multiple APS schools to emphasize the importance of reading and education. Additionally, all students attending “Education Day” with APS will receive an education workbook and GT crayons.
Due to the high volume expected to this game, the McCamish Pavilion Lot will be closed to patrons. Parking will be available in the Family Housing Parking Deck (located on 10th Street). Season ticket holders’ seat locations will not be impacted and will remain the same.
Single game tickets, which start at just $5 for youth and $7 for adults, remain on sale. Fans can purchase tickets to the season-opener by calling the Georgia Tech Ticket Office at 888.TECH.TIX or by clicking here.
