That drought will end Sunday, when No. 16 Tech plays No. 3 Louisville at McCamish Pavilion in the second ACC game for both teams. The Jackets and Cardinals are two of six ACC games in both the Associated Press and coaches top-25 polls.
The Jackets already have beaten a third-ranked team this season, having upset No. 3 Connecticut on Dec. 9 at McCamish. It was Tech’s first win over a team ranked in the top three since defeating No. 2 North Carolina in January 2009.
