While there are still some non-conference games left to be played, today marks the opening of conference play for North Carolina in the 2021-22 basketball season, and the first ACC game in the Hubert Davis era.
Today, the Heels will head to Atlanta to play a Georgia Tech team that has given them some issues in recent years. The Yellow Jackets have won the last two meetings over the last two seasons, both coming in wildly frustrating performances from UNC. Even the 2016-17 national championship winning team had trouble in Atlanta, losing a fairly infamous New Year’s Eve game.
This year’s Georgia Tech team has gotten off to a 5-2 start. One of those losses, Wisconsin, is very understandable. The other, Miami (Ohio), is a bit less so. Tech also had a close call against Georgia Southern, needing a big second half to rally after trailing by 12 at halftime.
