Very little has gone well for Boston College and Georgia Tech since ACC play began, and when the Yellow Jackets host the Eagles on Thursday after a one-day delay due to a winter storm, both squads will look to find something positive heading into the stretch run of conference action. Boston College has lost six of its past seven, including a 68-60 loss at home to Georgia Tech on Jan. 21. The Yellow Jackets could not parlay that victory into much success, dropping four of their five games since holding off the Eagles.One positive sign for the Yellow Jackets was the return of Robert Carter Jr. in Saturday's 64-45 home loss to Virginia. Carter, who missed 10 games after injuring his knee Dec. 29 at Charlotte, was leading the ACC in rebounding before getting hurt. The Eagles never led in an 89-68 loss to Duke on Saturday, but saw leading scorer Olivier Hanlan bust out of a slump with 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting.TV: 5 p.m. ET, New England Sports Network (Boston College), Fox Sports South (Georgia Tech), ESPN3ABOUT BOSTON COLLEGE (6-17, 2-8 ACC): The Eagles have been competitive through most of their recent skid, pushing unbeaten Syracuse in a 10-point loss, falling in overtime at Notre Dame and losing by 10 points at No. 21 Virginia.
