This is a can’t lose game for the Deacs, as they take on one of the worst teams in the conference at home. The Yellow Jackets doubled their conference win total this week with a road win over Notre Dame, but before that, GT was on a 9-game losing streak. That streak included a loss to 3-21 Louisville that put them in last place in the conference for a few days. Looking at the scouting report, Tech easily has the worst offense in the ACC in conference games this season. The Yellow Jackets rank 15th in eFG%, 13th in turnovers per possession, 14th in both 2-point and 3-point percentage, 15th in free throw percentage, and 15th in getting to the free throw line. To go with that, GT only has 1 player averaging in double figures this season in Miles Kelly, who is averaging 12.9 points per game on 39% shooting from the floor (over half of his shots are 3-pointers). If Wake can stop him from getting red hot from beyond the arc, they should absolutely win this game by double digits. Let’s hope they take care of business.

Go Deacs!
