A Closer Look: Wake Forest

The out of conference schedule is now over and even though it has been an up and down start of the season, one can't say it hasn't been exciting to watch.

Now, the real fun comes around, as the Tar Heels travel to Winston Salem to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

Last year, the Deacons struggled throughout the year but have quietly had success early this season with a 10-3 mark coming into the game.

The Deacons are coming off a road loss to Xavier, losing 68-53 last week. Now, the Tar Heels travel across the state to face a team they have defeated the most in the ACC.

Wake Forest has had a decent wins over Richmond in overtime and Southern California, while also playing against teams like then #2 Kansas, Tennessee, and Xavier.

But everything changes in ACC play, as the teams are familiar with one another more and teams know that anyone can beat any team on a given night.

The Tar Heels hope to open their ACC play with a win, while the Demon Deacons look to change their program around with a Top 25 win against Roy Williams and the Tar Heels.

Lets take a closer look at the Demon Deacons, as there are several areas against this team that could provide troubles for the Tar Heels on the road.
