Dey see me flopping, Dey Hating



The Wake Forest Demon Deacons (11-12, 2-7) has 7 games remaining and they are all ACC games. It is not the toughest stretch, Perhaps the easiest stretch with 4 maybe 5 out of the 7 games being winnable games. The toughest out of the 7 will be this Wednesday at Virginia Cavaliers (18-4, 5,3) and are currently ranked nationally as 18.

(After the Jump, I discuss all the remaining games)

Now KenPom has us finishing 13-17, 4-12. I think that is outrageous thinking BC at home will be the only game we win. I see us winning 4 no doubt, 5 very likely, 6 most likely, 7 tough to do, 8 is not in effect. I see us beating BC, GT home, Clemson, maybe pull out a win against Duke, or GT. Don't see us beating Miami.

Lets start off with the Virginia game. KenPom has Wake losing 67-50. Wake's chances of winning are 5%.

Virginia Stats:

C0e12770d1b3354826c110f7fb619104_medium

As you can see, We do not match up with Virginia.

Now we average 66.3 PPG and Virginia averages 64.3 PPG. We have 33.3 RPG, They have 33.9 RPG. We have 11.5 APG, They have 12.6 APG. We have an average of .427 FG Percentage, They have .460 FG Percentage.

I think that Wake could keep the game close in the first half but I just can't see Wake keeping it close in the 2nd half with a Top 25 team on the road. I see Mike Scott filling it up Wednesday night with 26 points and CJ leads the Deacs with 19 points. My prediction is that Wake keeps it withing range in 1st half with halftime score at 34-22 Virginia, Then they pull away fast in the end. 73-56.

Now with the Clemson game.

Our Stats:

Clemson's Stats:

E6a046645fdd84a9c4b9568abfabdcde_medium

Clemson beat Wake 71-60 at Clemson earlier this year in what was an ugly game for the Deacs. They started off great but fell apart in the end. Turnovers was our problem. The halftime score was 36-29 Clemson but the second half comparison was 35-31 Clemson. CJ led the deacs with 19 points and Andre Young, Their amazing PG, also led Clemson with 19 points.

Wake has 66.3 PPG, Clemson has 64.9 PPG. Wake has 33.3 RPG, Clemson has 33.0 RPG. Wake has 11.5 APG, Clemson has 13.0 APG. Wake has a .427 FG Percentage, Clemson has .433 FG Percentage.

As you can see, Wake matches up really good with Clemson. KenPom predicts Clemson wins 66-62. Wake has a 33% chance of winning. I honestly think wake has a MUCH better chance of winning. I put their odds at 62%. My prediction is Wake wins 71-67. CJ leads with 22 points and Tanner Smith leads with 16 points.

Now with the Georgia Tech game.

GT is currently ranked 141 in the nation by Kenpom and Wake is currently 205. But, I think the game will be much closer than the stats show.

Wake has 66.3 PPG, GT has 62.9 PPG. Wake has 33.3 RPG, GT has 36.0. Wake has 11.5 APG, GT has 10.6 APG. Wake has a .427 FG Percentage, GT has a .439 FG Percentage.

As you can see, GT is stronger than us and better at getting rebounds. It will be interesting to see how Carson/Daniel/Ty match up with GT's big guys. Ty will need to be aggressive and block a good amount of shots and contribute on offense. Kenpom predicts that GT wins 65-64. Wake has a 48% chance of winning.

I think that GT is the slightly better team but with the home field advantage for Wake, We pull through in the end and win 68-64. Will be a GREAT game. Both teams are evenly matched.

Now with the Miami game.

Our stats:

Miami's Stats:

D8a32d0f4939d2e72873e610c7441fee_medium

Miami definitely has the advantage. They will absolutely smother us on the boards. Wake will have to pull it together and take some steroids to win this game. I mean come on, They are ranked 62 in the nation by Kenpom AND we have to play them at their place. Whole different story if game is at the Joel. But, Nope, BankUnited Center.

Wake has 66.3 PPG, Miami has 77.2 PPG. Wake has 33.3 RPG, Miami has 34.2 RPG. Wake has 11.5 APG, Miami has 12.4 APG. Wake has a .427 FG Percentage, Miami has a .443 FG Percentage.

If you really look at it, Wake really is going to have a tough time. Kenpom has Miami winning 76-61. Wake has a 10% chance of winning.

My prediction says Wake struggles early but fights back late but doesn't have enough. Miami wins 84-71. CJ leads WF with 21 points.

Now with the Boston College Game.

First off, BC is currently ranked 268 in the nation by Kenpom, which is about as bad as Wake was last year. BC started off the year good then went into a slump but now is back on track. Their record doesn't show it but they are improving every game and so is Wake.


Wake has 66.3 PPG, BC has 59.9 PPG. Wake has 33.3 RPG, BC has 30.5 RPG. Wake has 11.5 APG, BC has 11.3 APG. Wake has a .427 FG Percentage, BC has a .410 FG Percentage.

Wake will once again dominate BC inside and hit the perimeter shots when BC panics and falls inside. Kenpom has Wake winning 68-60. Wake has a 77% chance of winning.

My prediction says Wake wins 72-59. CJ, Travis, Nikita all in double digits. CJ with 22, Travis with 14, Nikita with 15. Home field advantage will be a helpful factor since Wake beat BC by 14 in an away game.

Now with the Duke Game.

Our Stats:

Duke's Stats:

61784fec26dd6c81a8f4c2d69f5dd084_medium

Sadly, These types of games are no longer the best thing in town. Everyone used to be so fired up for the Duke games at the Joel. But now, We can't even fill up the Joel for these games.

Wake has 66.3 PPG, Duke has 80.0 PPG. Wake has 33.3 RPG, Duke has 35.6 RPG. Wake has 11.5 APG, Duke has 13.4 APG. Wake has a .427 FG Percentage, Duke has a .488 FG Percentage.

Duke will pull through and show us their talent. Wake will be all pumped up and start off the game great but slowly run out of energy and endurance. Kenpom says Duke wins 83-67. Wake has a 10% chance of winning. Odds are...we lose.

My prediction says 89-75 Duke wins. Halftime score is 34-27 Duke.

Now with the Georgia Tech game.

Wake will come out with the win when we play them earlier at the Joel but in this game, It will be tough to come out with a win.

Wake has 66.3 PPG, GT has 62.9 PPG. Wake has 33.3 RPG, GT has 36.0. Wake has 11.5 APG, GT has 10.6 APG. Wake has a .427 FG Percentage, GT has a .439 FG Percentage.

KenPom has GT winning 69-61. Wake has a 22% chance of winning. GT is the slightly better team. It will be a good game and I expect it to come down to the final 2 minutes but GT comes out with the W.

My prediction says GT wins 69-66.

I say Wake finishes as 10th seed, Plays Maryland at 7th seed. Wake wins 75-73. If we play great.

I hope that happens^^^.
