Deacons Close Out Regular Season Sunday

Wake Forest and NC State, two longtime rivals with very much on the line, meet in the regular season finale Sunday night at the RBC Center in Raleigh (8:08 pm/Fox Sports Net).

The fourth-ranked Demon Deacons, 25-4 overall and 12-3 in the ACC, have an outside shot at a share of the ACC regular season title and a better chance at an NCAA Tournament No. 1 seed. In addition, a win Sunday would tie for the most overall wins and most ACC wins in school history.

To accomplish any of that, however, the Demon Deacons would have to beat a surging NC State team Sunday.

The Wolfpack, 17-11 and 7-8, have won four of their last five, including an 82-72 win at Virginia Wednesday night. NC State, trying to secure an NCAA Tournament bid, is also attempting to get one of the top five seeds in next week's ACC Tournament. Finishing in the top five would allow the `Pack to avoid playing in Thursday's first round.

NC State leads the all-time series, 125-93.
