The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Florida State Seminoles are still competing for the ACC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament on Saturday night. Both teams advanced a round in this tournament due to their scheduled opponents dealing with COVID-19 issues.

Georgia Tech had the day off on Friday as the Virginia Cavaliers bowed out of the tournament because of COVID. In their only ACC Tournament game, the Yellow Jackets beat the Miami Hurricanes 70-66 on Thursday. After Duke exited the tournament, Florida State’s first ACC Tournament action came on Friday with a 69-66 win over the North Carolina Tar Heels. Balsa Koprivica scored 17 points with 11 rebounds in the win.

Let’s take a look at all the action from Saturday’s ACC tournament game at the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina.

No. 4 Georgia Tech vs. No. 2 Florida State, 8:30 p.m. ESPN

Point Spread: FSU -4
Point Total: 150.5

The Noles looked solid in an ACC Tournament yet again last night, getting 17 points from Balsa Koprivica. What separates this version of FSU from previous ones is the ability to score: They’re the No. 10 offense by adjusted efficiency in college basketball, and shoot 38.5% from three point range as a team. MJ Walker is one of the best players in the country that doesn’t get enough publicity, and they still defend like Leonard Hamilton teams tend to do.

The pick: FSU -4
