THE FLATS – Georgia Tech will be the No. 10 seed and will face No. 15 seed Notre Dame Tuesday in the opening round of next week’s 66th annual New York Life Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament, which will be played at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C.

The Yellow Jackets (14-17, 6-12 ACC) won their final two games of the regular season, knocking off Boston College at home, 81-78 in overtime, and NC State on the road, 63-61, in the last six days. Tech and Notre Dame split their regular-season series, each winning on their home floor. The Jackets captured a 63-61 victory on Jan. 22 in Atlanta, and the Fighting Irish took a 69-59 win on Feb. 10 in South Bend.

Notre Dame (13-18, 3-15 ACC) fell Saturday to Pittsburgh, 56-53, the seventh consecutive loss for the Fighting Irish since their Feb. 10 win over Tech.

The schedule for Tuesday’s opening round has been set, with No. 12 seed Miami opening against No. 13 Wake Forest at noon, followed by Tech-Notre Dame at 2 p.m. No. 11 Boston College will face No. 14 Pitt at 7 p.m. The remaining seeds will be determined after the rest of the ACC action today.

The Tech-Notre Dame game will be televised on the ACC’s Raycom Sports Network (Peachtree TV in Atlanta) in the ACC footprint, and ESPN outside the ACC markets. Radio coverage will be provided for all Tech games in the tournament on the Georgia Tech Learfield IMG College radio network (680 AM, 93.7 FM in Atlanta) and can also be heard on satellite radio (Sirius ch. 81, XM ch. 81, Internet 81 and 371).

This is Georgia Tech’s 40th ACC Tournament appearance, and the Yellow Jackets have a 26-36 all-time record in the event. The Yellow Jackets have won three championships, in 1985 (Atlanta), 1990 (Charlotte) and 1993 (Charlotte).
