The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will take on the #11 Virginia Cavaliers in Charlottesville this evening. We won't speak of the last time these two teams played, as I've tried my best to burn it from my memory. Unfortunately that gut wrenching "shot" is shown every time they play the ACC commercial.
Wake is an underdog in this one, but I definitely believe they can win. In order to win, John Collins has to stay out of foul trouble, Wake needs to knock down threes, and they also have to limit turnovers. X factors in this game are Bryant Crawford and Dinos Mitoglou.
I hope you'll join me in the comments section throughout the game. As always, go Deacs!
