This is another huge game for the Deacs. With Wake Forest owning the tie breaker over UNC and Virgnia, and UNC losing at home to Pitt earlier this week, the Deacs’ chances of grabbing a top 4 seed for the ACC Tournament are looking up yet again. That is, of course, as long as Wake takes care of business in their remaining games. Notre Dame is 2nd in the ACC standings currently, but they have had the advantage of a fairly weak conference schedule, so this is definitely a game the Deacs must win. I feel confident Wake will get the W as long as they don’t turn the ball over an absurd number of times. Go Deacs!
