ATLANTA–For the second straight year, the Georgia Tech basketball season is a complete sellout as Tech has sold the entire allotment of season tickets for the 16-game home slate at Alexander Memorial Coliseum.
Following an exhibition game against Augusta State on Nov. 6, Tech opens the regular season with a Nov. 18 home game against UNC Asheville as Paul Hewitt’s Yellow Jackets look to earn their third straight NCAA Tournament berth.
The schedule is highlighted by a non-conference game against Vanderbilt at Alexander Memorial Coliseum as well as Atlantic Coast Conference home games with against Duke, Wake Forest, Maryland, NC State, Virginia, Miami, Clemson and Boston College.
Tech fans can meet the 2005-06 Yellow Jacket men’s and women’s teams at the annual Hoops Fest, next Friday, Oct. 28, the night before the Yellow Jackets’ Homecoming football game against Clemson. The men’s and women’s teams will be available for photographs and autographs from 7-9 p.m. at Alexander Memorial Coliseum. There will be games and activities for children, including a Halloween costume contest.
