Deacons Face Another Road Test Saturday At Clemson

Fourth-ranked Wake Forest, coming off its seventh straight victory -- an impressive 89-70 win at 25th-ranked Virginia Sunday -- faces another ACC road test Saturday at Clemson (4 pm/Raycom-JP Sports TV).

This marks the first season since 1945-46 that the Demon Deacons and Tigers will meet just once during the regular season.

The Demon Deacons, 12-1 overall and 1-0 in the ACC, earned their largest margin of victory in Charlottesville since 1962 on Sunday. Six different WFU players scored in double figures against the Cavaliers, the Deacons shot 50.9 percent and out-rebounded the Wahoos, 45-28.

Clemson, 9-4 and 0-1, lost its ACC opener Sunday at 6th-ranked Duke, 62-54. Sharrod Ford scored 20 points to lead the Tigers, who held a 38-35 lead over the Blue Devils midway through the second half.

Wake Forest leads the all-time series, 92-50. The Demon Deacons have won the last four and 11 of the last 12 meetings with the Tigers.
