GAME NOTES

DEACS RETURN HOME TO HOST VIRGINIA TECH
• Wake Forest looks to even its ACC record as it hosts Virginia Tech
• The Deacs have won five straight ACC home games, dating back to last season, their longest conference home win streak since a 12-game streak spanning the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons

SERIES HISTORY
• Virginia Tech leads 33-31 (Wake Forest leads 17-8 at home, 5-4 at LJVM Coliseum)
• The teams split the two meetings last season, with the Deacs winning the regular season finale, 89-84, in Blacksburg before Hokies winning 99-90 the following week in the ACC Tournament second round in Brooklyn
• The Deacs have won three of the last four meetings in Winston-Salem, but the Hokies had an 81-74 victory in 2015-16 in their last visit to the LJVM Coliseum

LAST TIME OUT
• Wake Forest lost 77-71 at Boston College on Saturday
• Bryant Crawford had 24 points to lead the Demon Deacons
• Chaundee Brown scored 20 points, tying a Wake Forest record for 3-point percentage (min. 5 attempts) by a freshman by going 6-of-7 behind the arc

ON THE GLASS
• Wake Forest has been +20 on the boards over the last two games (+9 vs. Syracuse, +11 at Boston College)
• The last time the Deacs were at least a +9 on the glass in consecutive ACC games was a five-game stretch during the 2008-09 season
• What makes the accomplishment even more impressive was the competition, as Syracuse and Boston College rank third and fourth, respectively, in the ACC in rebounding margin
• Wake Forest is the only team to outrebound Syracuse this season

CRAWFORD APPROACHES 1200-400 CLUB
• Bryant Crawford is 10 points and 15 assists shy of becoming the fifth Demon Deacon to amass 1,200 points and 400 assists in his career
• He would join Skip Brown, Frank Johnson, Randolph Childress and Codi Miller-McIntyre
• When Crawford accomplishes the feat, he will be the first Demon Deacon to do so before his senior year

UP NEXT
• The Deacs have back-to-back games in the Triangle, starting with Saturday’s visit to No. 7 Duke
• Wake Forest is looking for its first win at Cameron Indoor Stadium since the 1996-97 season
