Things To Look Out For With Wake Forest
- Don’t Let Wake Forest Get to the Stripe: Wake is, collectively, one of the best free throw shooting teams in the conference. The Deacs are strong offensively overall, but free throws can be problematic for opponents. Especially with the foul-filled game last Saturday close in the rear-view mirror, the Eagles can’t get into foul trouble.
- Slow down John Collins: Our friends over at Blogger So Dear cited the matchup inside with John Collins as the matchup of the game. Collins put up 26 points in the last game the two teams played. The Eagles are going to need a big defensive game inside, because Collins can turn in a big-time performance.
- Distributed scoring: Ky Bowman, and Jerome Robinson will need a big game, and Jordan Chatman will need to be strong off the bench.

Thing to Watch Before Basketball
Clemson is playing NC State at noon, before the Eagles take the court. They could, hypothetically, play the Eagles at some point this tournament if BC wins.
No but seriously it might be a great game.
BC hasn’t proven that it could win a game since January. It is not going to win a must win game.
There are no staff predictions this game. Some of them forgot basketball season was still going on.
