The Cards will host the Wake Forest Demon Deacons for a late one Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. inside the KFC Yum! Center.

Wake has lost 6 of its last 8 games and the Deacons are 10-11 overall, 3-8 in the ACC. Still the Danny Manning led WF squad does have some nice wins during the 2019-2020 season: Davidson, Xavier, Pitt & Clemson. But there are some really bad losses too: BC, Charlotte.

Wake gets fouled a bunch and they shoot a lot of free throws. The Deacons are OK rebounding the ball. Everything else statistically needs major work.
