THE FLATS – Georgia Tech women’s basketball closes out the season-opening four-game homestand opening Atlantic Coast Conference play on Wednesday morning, welcoming Boston College. The Yellow Jackets and Eagles are slated to tip at 11 a.m. in McCamish Pavilion on the ACC Network Extra.
The Jackets (2-1, 0-0 ACC) grabbed their second victory of the season, defeating Tulane, 55-51, last week in McCamish Pavilion. Senior Lorela Cubaj posted her second-consecutive double-double with 18 points and 16 rebounds against the Green Wave for her 11th career double-double. Tulane staged a late rally, closing the deficit to within one possession, but the Jackets finished strong to collect the win. Freshman Loyal McQueen has earned the start in all three contests and has contributed double-figure scoring numbers each game.
Boston College (4-0, 0-0 ACC) enters conference play with an unblemished record after opening the season with four home victories. Taylor Soule leads the Eagles, averaging 17.3 points and 9.0 rebounds per game through four games.
Tech leads the all-time series against Boston College, 13-6, and has taken 10 of the last 12 meetings against the Eagles. When competing in Atlanta, Tech leads the series, 7-2, despite dropping last season’s regular season contest in McCamish Pavilion.
