Current Records: North Carolina 12-5; Wake Forest 15-4

What to Know

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will be returning home after a two-game road trip. Wake Forest and the North Carolina Tar Heels will face off in an ACC battle at 8 p.m. ET this past Saturday at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The Demon Deacons will be strutting in after a win while UNC will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Wake Forest didn't have too much trouble with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on the road this past Wednesday as they won 80-64. It was another big night for Wake Forest's guard Alondes Williams, who had 19 points and nine assists in addition to seven boards and three blocks.

Meanwhile, UNC suffered a grim 85-57 defeat to the Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes last Tuesday. Guard Caleb Love had a rough night: he finished with only five points on 2-for-12 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Demon Deacons are expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.

Wake Forest's victory brought them up to 15-4 while the Tar Heels' loss pulled them down to 12-5. Wake Forest is 11-3 after wins this season, and UNC is 3-1 after losses.
