Wake Forest @ Pittsburgh
Current Records: Wake Forest 14-6; Pittsburgh 13-7
What to Know
After a two-game homestand, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons will be on the road. Wake Forest and the Pittsburgh Panthers will face off in an ACC battle at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday at Petersen Events Center. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.
The Demon Deacons came up short against the Virginia Cavaliers this past Saturday, falling 76-67. That makes it the first time this season Wake Forest has let down their home crowd. Guard Damari Monsanto put forth a good effort for the losing side as he shot 7-for-15 from beyond the arc and finished with 25 points.
Meanwhile, the point spread favored Pitt this past Saturday, but luck did not. They fell to the Florida State Seminoles 71-64. Guard Nelly Cummings had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only seven points on 2-for-12 shooting in his 35 minutes on the court.
Wake Forest had enough points to win and then some against Pitt when the two teams previously met in February of last year, taking their contest 91-75. The rematch might be a little tougher for the Demon Deacons since the squad won’t have home-court advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
