Things haven’t gone as planned for either Boston College or Georgia Tech this season, with both teams finding themselves in the bottom half of the ACC standings after entering 2013-14 with hopes of surprising people. And that can also be said for their matchup on Thursday, a game that was originally scheduled to be played on Wednesday night.
A winter storm that hit much of the southern United States hard led to the postponing of the game, and from an entertainment standpoint it didn’t disappoint. The difference: a four-point play by Georgia Tech’s Marcus Georges-Hunt with seven tenths of a second left in the game, giving the Yellow Jackets a 74-71 win in Atlanta.
Georgia Tech fan Daniel Burapavong captured the deciding play on video, and a solid crowd attended the game at McCamish Pavilion despite the 5:00 p.m. start time and the fact that the game was played one day later than expected.
Georges-Hunt, who finished the game with 15 points, was one of four Yellow Jackets to score in double figures as Brian Gregory’s team moved to 4-8 in ACC play. Olivier Hanlan led Boston College with 21 points.
