This is the 1st time these schools met since the 2004 Final Four in a national semifinal game. A fond memory for Georgia Tech fans as Will Bynum won that game on a layup driving to the basket with 1.1 seconds left on the clock as pictured above. Oklahoma State fans are wondering if they can get some measure of revenge on the Yellow Jackets this year.
Georgia Tech who was struggling and on the bubble went on a run to knock off defending champion North Carolina, ACC co-champ Maryland, and NC State to make the ACC Final, fighting to the end before losing to Duke, after being inconsistent most of the year.
Oklahoma State has wins over #1 Kansas on their resume and will play with fire after getting embarrassed by Kansas State in the Big 12 tournament.
The Jackets boast an NBA talented frontline with Gani Lawal and Derrick Favors and have a talented Guard on the outside in Iman Shumpert.
Oklahoma State will bring Big 12 player of the year James Anderson with them into this game in a battle between 2 teams with potential NBA Draft Picks.
This game will be played in Milwaukee Friday Night, ironically the same place Georgia Tech started their run to the 2004 Final Four(where they beat Oklahoma State) in this same building.
