THE FLATS - Buoyed by a thrilling come-from-behind victory over Illinois Tuesday night at McCamish Pavilion, Georgia Tech continues a stretch of three straight home games with a 2 p.m. contest Saturday against East Tennessee State.
Radio coverage of the game will be provided by the Georgia Tech IMG Sports Network and can be heard in Atlanta on WYAY-FM (106.7), as well as nationally on satellite radio - Sirius channel 117 and XM channel 192. Tech's women's team also is in action Saturday against Alabama A&M following the men's game.
The Yellow Jackets (6-3) snapped a two-game losing streak with Tuesday night's 67-64 victory in which they erased a 60-48 deficit over the last seven minutes. The win also ended a five-game skid in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge series, and the Illini represented the highest-ranked team in the RPI (No. 18) that Tech has beaten since No. 6 Miami late last season.
