One game stands between Wake Forest and a quick return trip back to the Big Apple. It is unfortunate that every 1 seed in the NIT lost, except the one Wake Forest needed to lose so that they could have a third home game, but it is what it is. This should be a pretty solid matchup between two teams that (rightfully) believed that they should have been in the NCAA Tournament—assuming the Aggies don’t decide to back out on this game at the last minute. TAMU is not a great shooting team (49% eFG), but they are great on the offensive glass, rebounding around 34% of their missed shots. They also get to the line a ton, with over 20% of their scoring this season coming from the free throw stripe. The keys to the game for Wake will be limiting turnovers (as always) and making Texas A&M actually make shots, instead of giving them points at the line. We’re 1 game way from MSG. Let’s do the thing. Go Deacs!
