Riding a four game losing streak, the previously 13-16, and 4-12 in the ACC, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets rolled into Syracuse and knocked off the seventh-ranked Orange 67-62 on Tuesday putting a damper on Senior Night at the dome.
It was a win that ends a two-game skid, but yet another one that Syracuse fans had to sweat out in the closing minute of a game that never should have been that close. And, for much of the second half, it really wasn't.
Coming off an electrifying win against Duke on Saturday, many thought Syracuse would have a tough time repeating that performance. The main concern was the energy level and to begin the game it seemed that's exactly what Syracuse was lacking.
