Wake Forest [18-9 (8-7), RPI: 34, SOS: 31] The Demon Deacons' overall body of work suggests they will be included in the NCAA's 65-team field. But their current four-game slide might raise a few eyebrows with the NCAA selection committee. Wake Forest has five victories over RPI top-50 teams, beating Xavier, Maryland, Richmond and Georgia Tech at home and Gonzaga on the road. The Demon Deacons are 5-4 against RPI top-50 opponents and 7-7 against the top 100. The only way the Demon Deacons might not receive an NCAA at-large bid is if they end the season with a six-game losing streak. For that to happen, they would have to lose to Clemson on Sunday at home and lose their opening game in next week's ACC tournament. The Demon Deacons are 6-7 in road games and have two RPI sub-100 losses, losing at NC State on Feb. 20 and at Miami on Jan. 9.
