Ken Pom Prediction: Wake Forest 66 Georgia Tech 64 (58% win probability)
Both Wake Forest and Georgia Tech are coming off back-to-back close losses to conference opponents. The Demon Deacons have had late 2nd half leads against both #5 Louisville and #2 Duke this past week, while the Yellow Jackets lost in double overtime at Notre Dame and by one at home against Syracuse.
The rebounding battle will go a long way to determining who emerges victorious from this contest. Devin Thomas is one of the best defensive rebounders in the country, but he will be going against Charles Mitchell, who is one of the best offensive rebounders in the country. Georgia Tech shoots a low percentage from the field, so limiting their second chance opportunities will be huge.
It should be a good one. Come and join the conversation. As always, go Deacs!
