Bring On the Demon Deacons

Wake Forest is going down. Cleveland State earned a (13) seed, as projected earlier last week, and will square off against the Demon Deacons when the tournament begins.

The reality of it is, Wake is a solid squad. Real solid, and they went 24-6, on the year, without really a bad loss on the season. However, I will say this. The best player on the Vikings roster, will match-up with, and naturally guard, the best player on the Deacons squad. Meaning, the best perimeter defender, and playmaker, for the Vikings, Cedric Jackson, will naturally match-up with Jeff Teague, who is the best player on the Deacons roster. Teague is a 6'2" guard, and Jackson, who is the Defensive Player of the Year in the Horizon League, should match-up admirably against the All American, and make him work on the offensive end as well.

An additional edge the Vikings may have is inside, where an experienced front line of J'Nathan Bullock, Chris Moore, and George Tandy, will match-up with a young front line of 6'9" freshmen and sophomores for Wake. This game will be interesting.
