The Deacs take on a blast from the past today, as former Wake Forest coaches Chris Mack and Dino Gaudio roll into town with the 15th ranked Louisville Cardinals. The Cardinals have exceeded expectations in Mack’s first year; Louisville was picked to finish 11th in the conference this season, but through 7 games they are currently just 12 a game out of first place. The Cardinals have scored 81.1 points and given up just 67.6 points per game in conference play so far this season, making them one of the best teams in the ACC on both ends of the court. The Deacs will need a strong performance in front of the home crowd to pull off another upset over a top 25 team.
