Georgia Tech will be especially busy on Sunday. Beyond the men’s basketball team playing in a second-round NIT game against Belmont at noon at McCamish Pavilion, the Tech baseball, softball and women’s basketball teams will also be playing.

The softball team plays Syracuse at noon at Mewborn Field, the baseball team plays at Russ Chandler Stadium at 1 p.m. against North Carolina and the women’s basketball team will play a second-round WNIT game at McCamish at 5 p.m. against Central Florida.

Fans planning to come to campus before 2 p.m. will also have to plan around the Georgia Marathon and Half Marathon, which will take place Sunday morning and go through Tech’s campus. The school advises that “all fans accessing campus before 2 p.m. must do so via 10th Street,” as segments of North Avenue, Techwood Drive and Spring Street will be closed b because of the race.
