The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and the Northwestern Wildcats will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Welsh-Ryan Arena.

ABOUT WAKE FOREST (4-1): Sophomore Keyshawn Woods is a welcome addition for the Demon Deacons, doing a little bit of everything, including outstanding shooting. The 6-3 guard, who shot it well in his lone season with Charlotte, ratcheted it up for Wake Forest, particularly from 3-point range, where he is 14-of-21 on the young season. He has also contributed 25 rebounds and 22 assists, trailing only sophomore Bryant Crawford (38) in the latter and Collins and junior Konstantinos Mitoglou (6.7) in the former category.

ABOUT NORTHWESTERN (3-2): Law must have spent considerable time between his freshman and sophomore seasons working on his shot as he improved dramatically from inside and outside the arc. The 6-7 forward improved 20 percentage points to 58.7 overall and 27.5 percent to 63.0 from 3-point territory. Law and junior guard Scottie Lindsey combined to increase their scoring by 19.8 points per game over last season as the Wildcats have needed to replace two of their top three scorers for coach Chris Collins.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Wildcats listed as 4.5-point favorites versus the Demon Deacons, while the game’s total is sitting at 151 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

The true measure of just how good Wake Forest is probably won’t be known until it gets into the ACC portion of its schedule, but the results so far are encouraging heading into Monday’s game at Northwestern. The Demon Deacons bounced back from their lone defeat to No. 2 Villanova by posting double-digit victories over a couple South Carolina schools in Charleston and Coastal Carolina.

A 12-point victory over Coastal Carolina looks good on the surface, but Wake Forest jumped out to a 30-5 lead and spent the rest of the game fighting off the Chanticleers. “I told the guys we don’t apologize for win,” coach Danny Manning told the media. “We’re always happy with a win, but we’ve got work to do.” John Collins continues to be a monster on the inside for Wake Forest and had perhaps his best game of the season with 20 points and 13 rebounds against Coastal Carolina. For the season, the 6-10 sophomore is averaging 18.8 points and 8.5 rebounds while making 40-of-60 from the field. The Wildcats and leading scorer Vic Law won’t be pushovers in the first meeting with the Demon Deacons, not with a win over No. 21 Texas and narrow losses to Butler and Notre Dame by a total of six points on their resume.

In their last action, Northwestern was a 86-66 winner at home against Bulldogs.

Wake Forest was a 86-74 winner in its last match at home against Chanticleers. They failed to cover the -16-point spread as favorites.
