Georgia Tech hopes to ride the momentum of Wednesday's road victory over N.C. State into their Sunday matchup with Maryland. The Yellow Jackets evened their conference mark at 1-1 with that 82-71 win over the Wolfpack and enter Sunday with an 8-8 record overall.
After a lackluster run though the non-conference schedule that included losses to Tulane, Mercer and Fordham, the Yellow Jackets gave Duke all they wanted in the ACC opener and then defeated the Wolfpack on the road. Their recent good play suddenly has Tech feeling pretty good about themselves.
Said head coach Brian Gregory, "We're changing that mentality where you really embrace that challenge of going into a tough environment and playing well and playing tough with kind of a blue-collar approach."
They will need to continue that blue-collar approach against a Maryland team that is 11-4 overall and also 1-1 in the ACC. N.C. State snapped a seven game win streak by Maryland in the ACC opener but the Terrapins bounced back to defeat Wake Forest 70-64 on Wednesday.
