Coming in hot: Guard Iman Shumpert is on track to become the fourth player in ACC history to lead his team in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals. He averaged 21.5 points and 5.5 steals in Georgia Tech's last two games, both Yellow Jackets wins.

Number to know: 6-6, Georgia Tech's ACC tournament record in the last six seasons, with two trips to the finals. Over the same period, the Yellow Jackets were just 45-69 in ACC regular-season play.

Contender or pretender: The Yellow Jackets have won two in a row entering the tournament and get guard Brian Oliver back from a thumb injury. But in what could be coach Paul Hewitt's final game, Georgia Tech doesn't seem to have enough discipline on offense to defeat a Virginia Tech team that should play tough defense as it tries to squeak into the NCAA tournament.
