The Deacs are kicking off the new year in style with a road game against the Miami Hurricanes. The Canes are currently tied for the top of the conference at 2-0, so Wake is going to need to play better than they did the last time out against Louisville (and hope the clock operator is better) if they want to come away with a win. It is unfortunate that this game falls the day after the Gator Bowl when plenty of Deacon Nation will be traveling home, but the good news is that this is not a home game. Basketball season is just getting into the swing of things now, and I’m excited to see how the Deacs perform in conference play. Happy new year and Go Deacs!
