I’m definitely excited for the upcoming season. State and Tech should play each other every year in basketball. Would be a nice rivalry game for students and fans of both schools.

[...] Georgia State will play Duke in men’s basketball [...]

Georgia Tech won’t play GSU in men’s or women’s basketball? Wow.
