With a win over rival Clemson last night, Brian Gregory and the Georgia Tech basketball team were to do something that hadn't been done on The Flats in over eight years: win three ACC games in a row. That's right, Tech's recent hot-streak -- one which includes victories over Clemson, Notre Dame, and Florida State -- accomplished a feat which no Tech team had completed since January 27 of 2008 when Tech won game number three in a row against Virginia. That streak of mediocrity in conference play spanned a staggering 2,949 days from start to finish. Let's take a look at what was going on in the world last time the Jackets won three straight:
- When the team last won three games in a row versus the ACC, it was on the back of former Jacket Matt Causey; he scored 12 points in overtime to lead Tech to a victory over Virginia.
- Former president George W. Bush would deliver his final State of the Union address just one day later.
- The top song in America was Flo Rida's "Low", a track that debuted in late 2007.
