The Deacs are home for the ACC—SEC challenge, where Wake will take on their 3rd SEC team of the season (Georgia, LSU). This is a big opportunity for the Deacs to get a quality win over a what appears to be an NCAA tournament team, as the Gators have lost just twice this season to Virginia and #13 Baylor. Florida is playing very well this year, averaging a whopping 86.3 points on 17.2 assists per game. They are also one of the best rebounding teams in the country, grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game, including nearly 17 offensive boards per game. The Gators are so good on the offensive glass that they have rebounded 101 of their 199 missed shots so far this season, so boxing out and finishing possessions with a rebound will be key for the Deacs to get a victory.

Go Deacs!
