Matchup of the Game

The Inside Game

Georgia Tech does not take a lot of shots from the perimeter. Most of its points (57.5% to be exact) come from inside the arc. This will be very obvious when looking at the offensive scheme. Look for Marcus Georges-Hunt to drive inside for layups. The bigs will also play a big role for the Jackets, as they will likely look to stay inside and dominate the offensive the glass, and consequently finish on shots.

The game will either be won or lost by BC inside. If they can keep Georgia Tech off the glass, that takes away a major tool for the Jackets and could hamper the offense considerably.

This was the first drink that I had when I turned 21 at 12:01 Saturday, Feb. 20. What I like about this beer is how smooth it is. It is a substantial beer, yet it does not have much of a bite. It's perfect to just sit back and drink.

Also, for those who are interested in these things, it is brewed in Downingtown, Pa.
