The Cavalier men's basketball team practiced at Bobcats Arena in Charlotte this afternoon, as it prepares to battle Georgia Tech tomorrow night in the ACC Tournament. The Cavaliers and Yellow Jackets tip off in game three of action tomorrow at 7:00.
These two squads met twice this season, with both teams winning in hostile territory on the road. Georgia Tech earned a 92-82 overtime victory at John Paul Jones Arena, while Virginia grabbed a 76-74 win in Atlanta last Monday.
Virginia and Georgia Tech have met eight times in the ACC Tournament, with each team winning four of the contests. The Yellow Jackets have won 16 of the last 21 overall meetings with the Cavaliers. Dave Leitao enters with an ACC Tournament record of 1-2. The lone win came against Virginia Tech in first round action in 2006.
