Wake Forest will host St. John's to the Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, North Carolina Saturday afternoon. The game will be covered nationally by ESPN.
Wake Forest's basketball team will put its 5-0 record on the line Saturday when the Demon Deacons take on St. John's at the Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem. Wake's match-up with St. John's is just one of a few tough non-conference tests on the Demon Deacons' non-conference slate this season.
Last season, Marcus Hatten exploded on the Demon Deacons, leading the Red Storm to a hard-fought victory over Wake Forest. With a new season and a new group of players, Wake Forest hopes to get revenge on St. John's in 2002.
This season, the Red Storm is led once again by Hatten. The 6-1 guard is averaging 22.8 points per game.
Saturday's affair with St. John's is slated to begin at 3:30 and will be televised nationally on ESPN.
