Back with my game preview of Sunday's GU-Wake Forest game. The Demon Deacons are struggling, but they have been pretty efficient offensively (45.8% FG, 42.6% 3-pointers, 75.9% FT), but they averaged nearly five more turnovers per game than assists. Wake opponents are also scoring nearly 75 points per game.

Turn them over and play harrassing D.

That 3-point % is scary...

Everything scares me about this game. The travel, the emotional victory from last game, a new found confidence that may lead to complacency, WF getting hot at the right time.

But, I think that our team is thinking that none of the prior wins mean anything unless they finish their business tomorrow. All they have to look at is tomorrow's game, then a week to prepare for conference. There is also a revenge factor, especially for an up and coming player named Elias Harris whom I am pretty sure remembers last year.

I think we will win, a little closer than most of us would want, but there has to be some lag.

Adversity can help yield greater focus. Zags know this game will be a tough one, and I expect they'll come ready to play tomorrow morning.

So no one mentions Hyland leaving the team? Wish him the best.
