ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- The annual Georgia Tech-Georgia men's basketball game finds each team in obvious need of a boost.

Georgia is 8-4 with losses in three of its last five games.

Georgia Tech is 7-6, above .500 only after a shaky win over lowly
Presbyterian.

For added incentive tomorrow night, there's this: The Yellow ackets will be trying for their first win in Athens since 1976.

The Yellow Jackets beat Georgia 78-69 at Tech on December 22nd, 006. But they have lost 11 straight in the series in Athens. The sreak includes six losses at Stegeman Coliseum since the series returned to campus sites in the 1995-96 season.

The only win by a visiting team in the last 12 years was Georgia's 75-70 victory at Tech on December 6th, 2000.

Georgia is coming off a 75-67 road loss to Gonzaga last weekend.

The Bulldogs will open their Southeastern Conference schedule on
Saturday at Mississippi State.

Georgia Tech's only remaining game outside the Atlantic Coast Conference is February 9th at Connecticut. Georgia Tech, already
0-1 in the ACC with a 66-64 loss to Florida State on December 30th,
will play at Miami on Saturday.
