Wake Forest will conclude the non-conference portion of its schedule tonight when they travel to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to take on the LSU Tigers. The Tigers are led by Ben Simmons, who is the best player in college basketball.
LSU has won its past 3 contests by at least 20 points, while Wake Forest is coming off a close home loss to Xavier. The Deacs blew an 18-point lead in that contest, and hopefully come out with something to prove. Wake is going to have to do a better job of getting the ball in the paint. Ideally Devin Thomas can find a way to get Ben Simmons in foul trouble. If not, he should at least be able to operate fairly effectively down low, and also kick out to open shooters.
As always, go Deacs
