It's difficult to say that a game in mid January is a "must win," but this is getting pretty close. This is the first of a six-game stretch of extremely winnable games. Wake will be favored in at least three of them, and should be no more than a 3-point underdog in the remaining games. Because of that loss to Clemson, however, Wake Forest has less wiggle room moving forward. For Wake to get back in the postseason picture, then a win tonight is vital. I expect John Collins to have an outstanding game and carry us to victory.
I hope that you all will join me in the comments section below throughout the game. As always, go Deacs!
