What to Know
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will be playing at home against the Northeastern Huskies at 7:30 p.m. ET Friday. The Yellow Jackets are out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.
Georgia Tech received a tough blow on Tuesday as they fell 81-65 to the Iowa Hawkeyes. One thing holding Georgia Tech back was the mediocre play of guard Dallan Coleman, who did not have his best game: he finished with 12 points on 4-for-10 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, Northeastern was close but no cigar on Saturday as they fell 56-54 to the Princeton Tigers.
Georgia Tech is the favorite in this one, with an expected 12-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Tuesday might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a victory. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
