ESPN Matchup Predictor: 36%

The Deacs are back on the road after two straight home games to take on the Pitt Panthers. This looks like it should be a pretty even matchup between two similar teams. Like Wake Forest, the Panthers rely much more heavily on their offense than their defense and take a ton of 3-pointers. So far this season, Pitt is attempting over 25 3-pointers per game, but they only make around 34% of them. Both Pitt and Wake shoot over a very high 53% from inside the arc, but both only take around 32 2-pointers per game, which is one of the lowest rates in the NCAA. I expect this will be a fast-paced, high scoring game with both teams letting in fly from deep anytime they get the chance.

Go Deacs!
