The playoffs started Saturday for the Albany Tech basketball team. Stuck down in the depths of the Region 17 standings, the Titans needed three wins in the final three games to survive.
Albany Tech couldn't withstand the constant attack from Chattahoochee Tech, the 16th ranked team in the nation, falling Saturday 79-56. With the loss, Tech is eliminated from region tournament consideration.
The Titans (4-14, 8-20) finish the season on the road against Georgia Highlands and Georgia Perimeter.
