Well, this article was comforting in that it assumes the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets basketball team is a shoo in for the NCAA Tournament. Selection Sunday is coming up and teams will be looking to make the trip to Indiana where the entirety of the tournament will be taking place this season. The Yellow Jackets put together as strong a case as you can imagine for a 15-8 team that’s not ranked in the top 25. Their six game win streak proved that they can put together a stretch of victories on the road and at home. We’ll know soon enough if they will make it to the Big Dance.

Yellow Jackets basketball head coach Josh Pastner seems to have his team on the precipice of its first NCAA Tournament bid of his tenure. As he mentions in the article, he imagined he would need at least five years to get the team to where the team is today. And more than likely they’ll be in the NCAA Tournament come this upcoming Selection Sunday.

The #18th ranked Georgia Tech volleyball team lost to Pitt yesterday 3-0. They had won eight matches in a row prior to the loss. The Yellow Jackets will be returning home to host Boston College and North Carolina. As the article mentions, the first of those matches will be against the Eagles on Friday, then the Yellow Jackets will finish off the weekend against the Tar Heels on Sunday. You can stream the matches on ACC Network Extra. #GoJackets

After the Yellow Jackets baseball team’s impressive 2-1 series against the top ranked Louisville Cardinals, they have improved in their own ranking. The Yellow Jackets are now the seventh ranked team in the country. They have most of the week off this week. Their next game is not until Friday when they will host conference rival Pitt for a three game series. After that, they will end their eight game homestand hosting Georgia Southern on Wednesday, March 17th before heading back on the road.
