Those games fit in between home games already scheduled against Virginia (Feb. 10) and Boston College (Feb. 16). Pastner told the AJC that there have been conversations with Boston College and the conference about moving back the Boston College one day. As of Wednesday, the Eagles weren’t scheduled to play again until the following Tuesday, but they have postponed games to make up, too.
This will provide a particular challenge for the Jackets, as Pastner typically uses a seven-man rotation and leans especially heavily on point guard Jose Alvarado and forward Moses Wright. The strategy appeared to deter Tech in its 74-58 loss at Louisville on Monday, which was a make-up game played less than 48 hours after Tech’s win over Florida State on Saturday.
