Olivier Hanlan Really, Really, Really Likes To Play Against Georgia Tech

I don't know either, man.

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Some guys just rise to the occasion against certain opponents. For Olivier Hanlan, that appears to be Georgia Tech.

vs GA Tech Career
MIN 37.5 35.5
FGM 8.3 5.4
FGA 14 12.2
FG% 59.5% 44.6%
3PM 3.2 1.6
3PA 4.7 4.7
3P% 67.9% 34.7%
FTM 2.8 4.3
FTA 4.2 5.6
FT% 68.0% 77.1%
REB 4 3.8
AST 1.8 3
STL 1.3 1.1
PF 1.3 2.2
TO 2.5 2.4
PTS 22.7 16.8

Of course, when you set the ACC Tournament single-game scoring record for a freshman with 41 against Georgia Tech, these stats will be a bit skewed. But yesterday's 25 points was a season high for Hanlan, too.

In six career games against the Yellow Jackets, Hanlan has gone off for 14, 41, 19, 21, 16 and now 25. I can't explain it. I just wish there was another regular season game vs. Georgia Tech on this year's schedule.

For Boston College's sake, let's hope Hanlan enjoys playing against Louisville as much as he enjoys playing against Georgia Tech.
