The Deacs are away from the Joel for the first time this season in the Emerald Coast Classic, playing the late night game against Oregon State. Despite making the NCAA Tournament last season and advancing all the way to the Elite 8 as a 10 seed, the Beavers have won just 1 game this season and have already fallen 30 spots in KenPom since the season began. The Beavers certainly don’t look like a very good team right now, but they will be Wake’s best opponent this season by almost 150 KenPom spots. Based on that, I’ll say this is the first real test the Deacs have faced this season, but I really think Wake should win this game easily. Go Deacs!
