Boston College Vs. Wake Forest: Eagles Take On Demon Deacons

With a chance to reach double-digit wins still remaining, the young Boston College Eagles (8-19, 3-10 ACC) take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (12-15, 3-10 ACC) at 1 p.m. Saturday in Winston-Salem, NC (TV/Radio: ESPN3/WEEI).

As the season winds down, the Boston College Eagles aren't in position to clinch an NCAA Tournament big as they were one year ago, but the young, fresh-faced Eagles can still finish the year with 11 wins and six conference victories.

The first step would be defeating the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, a team the Eagles lost to at home earlier in the season, as the two teams meet at 1:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday afternoon at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum (TV/Radio: ESPN3/WEEI).

The Eagles lead the all-time series against the Demon Deacons, 9-4. Since joining the ACC, BC is 6-4 in games against Wake Forest. Last year, the Eagles won both meetings, breaking a stream of three-straight Demon Deacons victories.

Earlier this season, Wake Forest escaped with a 71-56 win over Boston College on Jan. 21 at Conte Forum. Travis McKie led all scorers with 20 points while grabbing 10 rebounds and C.J. Harris chipped in with 15 points to lead Wake Forest. Ryan Anderson was the Eagles' high scorer, finishing with 13 points while also racking up 11 rebounds and one block.

Chase Fischer scored 13 off the bench in the win for Wake Forest, which made 26-of-59 field goals (44.1 percent). Jordan Daniels totaled 12 points and five assists and Lonnie Jackson added 10 points for BC, which only shot 31.1 percent.

Since that meeting, the Eagles have dropped seven of eight games, with their only win coming in upset fashion against the then No. 15/17 ranked Florida St. Seminoles. Meanwhile, the Demon Deacons lost six in a row before finally topping Georgia Tech and have lost seven of their last eight.

Boston College returns home to host Georgia Tech in its home season finale Wednesday.
