BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
Wake Forest is ranked as one of the NCAA’s worst teams at perimeter defense; this would be a great opportunity for Jordan Chatman to get hot from behind the arc. 7’1” Junior Doral Moore can be overpowering in the paint. The BC frontcourt will have to step up and frustrate him defensively. Most importantly, BC needs to play two halves of good basketball. Their second half effort just wasn’t quite enough to get them over the hump vs. Clemson this week; they can’t afford be digging any more first half holes during ACC play.
