Shanghai, China – The Georgia Tech men’s basketball team is getting the experience of a lifetime this week as the Yellow Jackets visit China and open their 2017-18 season against UCLA in the 2017 Pac-12 China Game presented by the Alibaba Group.

The 2017 Pac-12 China Game between UCLA and Georgia Tech will tip off the 2017-18 basketball season and be broadcast live on ESPN at 11:30 p.m. Friday night, Nov. 10. The game is part of Pac-12 Global, an unprecedented effort to promote goodwill for the Conference and its member institutions through sport, and to provide student-athletes with a transformative cultural exchange experience.

Georgia Tech’s third full day in China was relatively light with study hall in the morning, followed by a one-hour transition to Shanghai on high-speed rail. The Jackets settled into their new hotel by the Bund District, ate dinner and had a film session in the evening.
