Georgia Tech will travel to the Northeast for its only meeting with Boston College this year when the Yellow Jackets and Eagles square off at noon on Sunday at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Mass. Sunday’s game will be the regular season finale for both teams as the ACC Tournament begins March 7 at the Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum.
The Jackets have won four straight and six of their last eight heading into Sunday’s game with the Eagles. A win would assure Tech of either the No. 6 or 7 seed in next week’s ACC Tournament. Entering Sunday, Tech is tied with Virginia for sixth in the standings.
Freshman Brittany Jackson led Tech in the Jackets’ last game with 22 points in 15 minutes. Rookie Aaliyah Whiteside tossed in 15 points and classmate Roddreka Rogers pulled in 11 rebounds.
