Time: 8:30 p.m.
Location: LJVM Coliseum
KenPom Line: 3 (76-73) (61% win probability)
Vegas Line: Wake Forest -4
The Deacs will look to bounce back from their 30-point loss to Arkansas when they host Iona at 8:30 p.m. The Deacs can't possibly have a worse start than they did the last time they played Iona. In that contest the Deacs found themselves down 30-3 and 41-5, respectively. #NeverForget
But that was then and this is now. The Deacs may have already played two games this week, but they are still a 4 point favorite in Las Vegas. Iona has a strong offense, so it will be critical for Danny Manning to continue his fast substitution pattern and keep fresh legs in for defensive purposes.Defensively, Iona is poor, so I'd expect another monster game from Devin Thomas. Additionally, Iona only rebounds 13% of their missed shots, so Wake Forest should limit Iona's additional opportunities.
We've had some awesome game threads for our past two games and I'm looking forward to another great one tonight. If you are at the game, you can still chime in on our mobile site (that's what I'll be doing). Go Deacs!
