What to Know

The Syracuse Orange and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are set to square off in an ACC matchup at noon ET Jan. 21 at McCamish Pavilion. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

The Orange had lost two consecutive heartbreakers to the Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes, and they left with a heavy heart again on Monday. It was close but no cigar for 'Cuse as they fell 82-78 to Miami (Fla.). Center Jesse Edwards put forth a good effort for the losing side as he posted a double-double on 25 points and 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Georgia Tech ended up a good deal behind the NC State Wolfpack when they played on Tuesday, losing 78-66. Guard Miles Kelly wasn't much of a difference maker for Georgia Tech; Kelly finished with only nine points on 4-for-13 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.

Barring any buzzer beaters, 'Cuse is expected to win a tight contest Saturday. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with the Orange, who are 10-9 against the spread.

'Cuse got away with a 74-73 win when the two teams previously met in February of last year. The rematch might be a little tougher for them since the team won't have home-court advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
