Wake Forest Demon Deacons (8-2) vs. #6 Xavier Musketeers (11-0)

Vegas Line: Xavier is favored by 7 points
Tonight at 7 p.m. the Deacs will take part in what I consider to be the program's biggest game in 5 years. With a win, Wake Forest would knock off an undefeated team ranked #6 in the country, would advance to 9-2 on the season, and would probably earn a spot in the top 25 rankings in the next AP poll. A win would go a long way in boosting Wake Forest's postseason resume. There are also a number of highly touted in-state prospects who will be in attendance tonight.
Wake is going to have to have its best rebounding and defensive performances this evening if the team is going to pull off the upset. I believe they're very capable, but they have to play hard for all 40 minutes of this contest.
As always, go Deacs!
