The Charleston Classic begins tonight and the Deacs are taking on the Utah Utes in the opening round. The Utes are the second tallest in the team in the country, and they have a couple of really good 7 footers in Branden Carlson and Lawson Lovering who are averaging a combined 23.5 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 assists per game this season. The Deacs were outscored by 20 points in the paint in their loss to Georgia last week, so Utah could present challenge for Wake down low. This is a quality opponent that should turn into a Quad 1 game later in the season, so a win here would be big for the Deacs.

Go Deacs!
