Ken Pomeroy Prediction: Wake Forest 71 Pittsburgh 70 (Wake has a 54% win probability)
Wake is coming off arguably its worst performance of the season and will be taking on a Pittsburgh team who is gunning for a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Under Danny Manning, Wake Forest has rebounded well coming off poor performances. After an ugly loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels, the Deacs had strong showings against Clemson & Florida State. Following a poor performance on the road against Georgia Tech, Wake followed it up with a nice home win over Miami. Wake has had good showings against other bubble teams - Miami and North Carolina State - can Wake complete the trifecta?
As always, go Deacs!
