When Wolfpack Basketball (10-5, 0-2) rolls into Winston-Salem tonight for a road tilt against the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest (9-5, 0-2), both teams will be looking to avoid an 0-3 start to league play.
In spite of two straight setbacks to begin ACC play, Mark Gottfried’s first 0-2 league start as head coach at NC State, he says he likes his team and that they’re “not far off”.
Despite their own 0-2 start, Wake has been impressive so far. They’re coming off a loss to Duke in which they were within 2 with less than 10 mins to play before Duke pulled away late. Prior to that, Danny’s Deacs went on the road and pushed Louisville to the limit before falling in the last two minutes.
Needless to say, this one is a must win for both clubs.
Tip time is 8pm.
