Georgia vs. Georgia Tech: Yellow Jackets seek 2nd straight win in series

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Tech is becoming familiar with wins over Georgia.

On Tuesday night, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets might claim to do something they haven't done since 1994: beat Georgia twice in a row.

The Yellow Jackets won the annual matchup last year, snapping a 13-year losing streak, Ken Sugiura of the AJC wrote. Now if the Jackets do it again, it will be the first set of back-to-back wins since Tech had a three-game winning streak span from 1992 through 1994. Guard Mfon Udofia licked his lips at the challenge:

"For us to beat them two times in a row going out (as a senior), I'd be real excited."

Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory was a bit more sanguine about the opportunity:

"They talk about all the different aspects of what happens if who wins or whatever the case might be. What it would be for us and them, it would be a step in the right direction in terms of continuing the process of this season."

Last year's win, which came in Athens, was a convincing one for Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets outscored the Bulldogs in the second half, 43-27. Georgia Tech was down four points at halftime, but rallied back to earn the 68-56 win.

As a team, the Jackets shot 52 percent from the field. Georgia shot just 35 percent, including a 2-of-9 performance from behind the arc from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Tech was led by five scorers in double digits, including a team high 15 points from Jason Morris.

Tip off is set for 7 p.m. ET Tuesday.
