Georgia Tech women’s basketball looks to snap a two-game skid on Sunday when it welcomes Boston College for a 2 p.m. matinee. The Yellow Jackets dropped a heartbreaker against No. 23/24 North Carolina last Thursday, 73-68. Tech trailed by 14 points with 5:30 left to play in the game before staging a late rally, ultimately cutting it to two points with 11 seconds to play. But the Tar Heels went 6-for-6 from the free throw line down the stretch to seal the win.

Boston College is coming into the contest riding a two-game win streak, having defeated Pittsburgh in overtime and Wake Forest, most recently. The Eagles have dropped all three league games on the road this season, but are 3-0 when competing at home against conference opponents. Four players average double-figures to lead the Eagles. Andrea Daley produces a team-high 15.9 points per game on average, while Teya Sidberry adds 13.3 points and a team-best 6.9 rebounds per game.

Georgia Tech leads the all-time series against Boston College, 15-9, dating back to the first meeting in 1991. The Eagles, however, have taken three of the last four matchups, including a pair last season. The squads first met in the regular season in Chestnut Hill with BC defending its home court before meeting against in the first round of the ACC Tournament.
