The Virginia Tech men’s basketball team returns to the court at Cassell Coliseum Saturday night to host Georgia Tech in the middle of a three-game homestand over six days. The Hokies kicked off the homestand with a 76-71 victory over Boston College Tuesday night. After hosting the Yellow Jackets, Tech will close out the homestand Monday night in a key Quad 1 battle against Duke.

Currently in not a lot of NCAA Tournament projections, the Hokies need to string wins together to get back in the March conversation. They will be looking for their third straight victory after beating North Carolina State last Saturday on the road.

Virginia Tech vs. Georgia Tech, How to Watch, Preview

12-7 (4-4 ACC). 447. 5:00 p.m.. 9-10 (2-6 ACC). 436. ACC Network. Jan. 27. ACC.

This game will begin at 5 o’clock and be broadcast on the ACC Network and FuboTV

Point guard Sean Pedulla has been playing really well lately for the Hokies despite having trouble turning the ball over. Against NC State and Boston College, the junior made some clutch 3-point shots that were key in keeping both teams behind Tech.

Hunter Cattoor has been playing well and Lynn Kidd has become a presence again on the inside for Virginia Tech and the Hokies are a better team when they establish him on the offensive end. Tyler Nickel has shot the ball well off the bench and Robbie Beran has settled nicely into his role for head coach Mike Young.

Georgia Tech comes into the 9-10 with Miles Kelly being their leading scorer, averaging 14 points a game. The Yellow Jackets enter the game losing four of their last five games.

It’s plain and simple for Virginia Tech, this a game that they should and must win. Winning this game will not spike their NET rankings much, however, a loss is devastating for them in terms of the NCAA Tournament. This would be a loss that all but ends your chances.
