Clean-Old Fashioned, Hoops Hate 2010 Edition

Georgia Tech's winning percentage over Georgia since 1952 (includes 1906-2010 data).
For this year's preview of the Georgia Tech-Georgie basketball game I just wanted to highlight some interesting historical figures. Tech hasn't had a sub-0.500 record against Georgie since 1943 in hoops. Check out the chart for some interesting moments in the GT-UGA rivalry and their effects on Tech's advantage in the overall series.

The longest win streak against the dogs was 10 games stretching from 1958-1961. As a member of the SEC from 1932-1964, Tech dominated the dogs with a 57-31 overall record. Since joining the ACC, Tech has actually posted a 15-20 record against the dogs. The ACC era included a particularly brutal stretch where the dogs defeated Tech 7 times in a row (Dominique Wilkins' college tenure was right in the middle of this run). Paul Hewitt has yet to amass a winning streak against Georgie. The last time Tech posted a winning streak against the dogs was 1992-1994.

If the dogs keep up their current rate of defeating Tech (+5 games every 35 years), they will be at a 0.500 winning percentage by 2129. Go Jackets!
