The heavy start does trade off with a lighter closing run. The Jackets’ last six league games are at Wake Forest, at Syracuse, home against Clemson, Miami and Pittsburgh and at Clemson. Of those six games, five are against teams that did not make the NCAA tournament last season, with Syracuse the exception.
Notably, nine of Tech’s 20 league games will be broadcast on the ACC Network, including seven of the first eight ACC games. It’s possible another two more could be on the newly launched network, as well.
