ATLANTA (AP) -- Brian Gregory is hoping his Georgia Tech players avoid thoughts of being the surprise team in this week's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Gregory wants his players focused only on small steps, not four-day runs, through the tournament. Georgia Tech has lost in the first round the last two years. The Yellow Jackets didn't win back-to-back regular-season conference games this year.

The ACC tournament is Georgia Tech's last chance to show it can win -- and then win again -- in the league.

Georgia Tech (16-14) has battled inconsistency. It closed the regular season with Saturday's loss at Boston College after a big win at then-No. 6 Miami. The Yellow Jackets will play Boston College in a rematch in Thursday's first round of the tournament in Greensboro, N.C.
