This game marks the return of freshman guard Mitchell Wilbekin, who was suspended by the NCAA for three games. In his absence the Deacs went 2-1, including a thrilling last-second victory over Richmond. It will be Wake Forest's last game of non-conference play, and a win will be much-needed. After this the Deacs face the arduous task of hosting #5 Louisville and #2 Duke in back-to-back games. Wins in the ACC will be difficult to come by, so this is a great opportunity to establish some more momentum and confidence headed into conference play.
I think Wake's athleticism and rebounding ability will be too much for Wake to handle and ultimately the Deacs will emerge victorious. What are your thoughts on the game?
As always, go Deacs!
