Odds: Game opened as a pick 'em, but Wake Forest is now a 3.5 point favorite. Over/Under is 134 points. Ken Pom likes College of Charleston to win 67-66 (54% win probability), but is considering this a true home game for Charleston.
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will conclude play in the Charleston Classic this evening when they take on the College of Charleston in the 3rd place game. This is the beginning of a critical four-game stretch for the Deacs, who will play Charleston, Coastal Carolina, then at Northwestern, and at Richmond over the next two weeks. Realistically, Wake needs to win at least three of those to keep postseason hopes alive, but Ken Pom has Wake as underdogs in 3 of the 4.
I'm hoping that the Deacs bring excellent energy tonight and attack College of Charleston through John Collins. Wake is an excellent shooting team, but they can be caught settling for threes. They need to look to be aggressive and hope to get great inside shots first, and then move to the outside shot.
I hope you all will join me in the comment section during the game. As always, go Deacs!
