Georgia Tech’s basketball team will play Northwestern Nov. 29 in the 13th annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge. It will be among the first game that the Yellow Jackets play at Philips Arena as their on-campus arena is renovated. The Jackets played the Wildcats last year in Evanston, Ill., with Northwestern winning 91-70. The game will have some familiarity for new Tech coach Brian Gregory. He was an assistant for Northwestern 1997-99 under Kevin O’Neill and also grew up in the Chicago area.
Tech is 4-7 in the challenge. Northwestern is 5-7.
