Ken Pom Prediction: Boston College 71 Wake Forest 68 (Wake Forest has a 37% win probability)
Our beloved Wake Forest Demon Deacons will close out their regular season today when they travel north to take on the Boston College Eagles. The Deacs are still seeking their first conference road win of the season. They came very close against Syracuse, Florida State, Clemson, and Virginia. Still, the Deacs enter this contest with an 0-8 conference road record.
Wake Forest should be able to get to the charity stripe,as the Deacs have a top 55 free throw rate, and BC has a bottom 75 defensive free throw rate. Wake should also limit BC's offensive opportunities. The Deacs are top 30 in defensive rebounding percentage, while BC is bottom 50 in offensive rebounding percentage. BC shoots over 52% from inside the arc, which is 37th nationally, while Wake allows opponents to shoot 50.8% from inside the arc, which is 278th nationally. BC will probably make shots, but it will be key for Wake to limit BC's second chance opportunities.
How do you all think this one is going to go? Please join the discussion during the game. As always, go Deacs!
