NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Miami-Florida Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets men’s basketball team shocked the 15th/16th ranked Virginia Tech Hokies last night. You can see some photos from last night’s game in this article. It wasn’t even close as the Yellow Jackets ended up winning 69-53. With the win, Tech is putting a very strong case forward for a bid to the NCAA tournament which is right around the corner.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets women’s tennis player Kenya Jones was named ACC Player of the Week. This was the second time she has received the recognition. As the article mentions, she’s ranked 13th in singles. She was undefeated last week as the Yellow Jackets began their ACC play at home. Some of her victories came against both Miami and Florida State. The Yellow Jackets next match comes this weekend as they will host conference rival Clemson. Congratulations to Jones and good luck to the women’s tennis team as they continue their season.

The event takes place between Feb. 24-27 and will be held at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Yellow Jackets are ranked 22nd in the nation. You can watch them compete on the ACC Network Extra which will be broadcasting the event each day.
