What to Know
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are 1-7 against the Louisville Cardinals since January of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Sunday. Georgia Tech and U of L will face off in an ACC battle at 6 p.m. ET at McCamish Pavilion. The Yellow Jackets are out to stop a three-game streak of losses at home.
The Georgia State Panthers typically have all the answers at home, but two weeks ago Georgia Tech proved too difficult a challenge. Georgia Tech was able to grind out a solid victory over Georgia State, winning 72-62. Guard Jordan Usher took over for Georgia Tech, finishing with 30 points (a whopping 42% of their total) along with 11 boards.
Meanwhile, this past Wednesday the Cardinals capped 2021 off with a 73-69 win over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Four players on U of L scored in the double digits: guard Noah Locke (17), forward Samuell Williamson (12), forward Malik Williams (11), and guard Mason Faulkner (11).
Georgia Tech is expected to lose this next one by 3. Those who got lucky with them against the spread two weeks ago might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Their wins bumped Georgia Tech to 6-5 and U of L to 8-4. In their victory, the Yellow Jackets relied heavily on Usher, who shot 5-for-6 from downtown and finished with a double-double on 30 points and 11 rebounds. the Cardinals will need to find a way to minimize his impact if they want to win.
