Georgia Tech returns to McCamish Pavilion tonight when it takes on the Syracuse Orange.
In last year’s matchup in Atlanta, an airball by Syracuse’s John Gillon took on a life of its own after relentless chants by Tech students and a phone call from an upset Syracuse fan to Josh Pastner.

Whatever the outcome of the game, we should all root for a Syracuse airball because McCamish Pavilion will go absolutely nuts.
On the tennis court, Tech’s upcoming match against No. 4 Georgia will be nationally televised on Tennis Channel.
