November 9th will be a big day for Georgia Tech athletics, as the basketball team will open up their new basketball facility, McCamish Pavilion against Tulane. The Yellow Jackets announced tentative schedule today on their official athletic site.
Head Coach, Brian Gregory is excited to open up the facility.
"I believe our home non-conference and conference schedule will bring a lot of exciting basketball to our new home, McCamish (pronounced mc-CAME-ish) Pavilion," said head coach Brian Gregory. "The challenging opponents will also act as another step in the process of rebuilding our program. To open McCamish Pavilion with a traditional competitive rival with the history of Tulane acts as a bridge between our history and our future. It will be a great early season test for our team. "
While Gregory is excited, fan reaction to the Yellow Jackets non-conference schedule has been more subdued. Outside of an annual rivarly with Georgia and a Big 10/ACC Challenge opponent of Illinois, Georgia Tech has no other notable high-major opponents.
