College Basketball 111 in 111: #103 Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s second annual college basketball season preview series.  Last year we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  This year, we are being slightly more aggressive and expanding to 111 teams in 111 days.  We will rank the 74 power conference teams and top 37 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

It isn’t easy to play in the ACC and Wake Forest will have a tough task in front of them this year. Even if the Demon Deacon don’t win all the games on their schedule they will be a tough team to beat against the spread.

Last season was supposed to horrific for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and it was as they were only victorious in one ACC game.  Don’t expect a major turnaround this season especially since Wake loses a couple of key contributors due to off-the-court issues.
