First half recap:
After a track meet of a first half, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons lead the North Carolina Tar Heels, 34-32. This, despite the Heels simply owning the boards, 36-14. Wake Forest held UNCto 32.5 percent shooting, and forced 9 turnovers. The Deacs could be up by even more, but are only 8-18 from the free throw line.
The gameplan on offense has been to get the guards a lane to the basket and create contact. This is working, with James Michael McAdoo and J.P. Tokoto saddled with 3 fouls apiece. The Deacons also played a significant portion of the first half with sophomore Devin Thomas on the bench with 2 fouls.
If the Deacs can keep up the defensive intensity, and make some free throws, we could be in for an upset tonight. However, I find it hard to believe that they can get a win losing on the boards by that much.
