Wake Forest is back in action tonight after picking up their first conference win of the season over the weekend. The Deacs are on the road to take on the NC State Wolfpack, a team that has won 3 straight over Wake Forest by an average margin of over 16 points. As Wake has struggled bringing the ball up the court against pressure all season, there is no doubt the Wolfpack are going to be extremely aggressive and try to force a ton of live ball turnovers that they can convert into fast break points. It will be up to the Wake Forest guards to keep that from happening.
