The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and the UNC Greensboro Spartans will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Greensboro Coliseum.

ABOUT WAKE FOREST (7-2): Collins committed at least three fouls in seven of nine games and told reporters of his lack of playing time because of it: “I have to keep myself grounded and realize coach (Danny Manning) isn’t just taking me out to take me out.” Sophomore guard Keyshawn Woods is second on the team in scoring (13.0) despite starting each game on the bench, draining 16-of-29 from 3-point range and shooting 57.5 percent overall. Sophomore guard Bryant Crawford scored 15 and shot 6-of-9 from the field Tuesday and is averaging 12.7 points and 6.1 assists.

ABOUT UNC GREENSBORO (7-2): The Spartans started the season 1-2, including a 76-51 loss against Virginia of the ACC, and won the last six by an average of 23.2 points. Sophomore guard Francis Alonso leads the team in scoring (13.1) and made 25-of-57 from 3-point range to lead a team connecting on 39.2 percent from behind the arc. Senior guard Diante Baldwin (12.6) and junior forward Marvin Smith (11.4) are also scoring in double figures while senior center R.J. White (9.4 points, 5.9 rebounds) is also productive.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Demon Deacons listed as 9.5-point favorites versus the Spartans, while the game’s total is sitting at 155 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

In their last action, UNC Greensboro was a 108-56 winner at home against Lions.

Wake Forest was a 91-74 winner in their most recent outing at home against 49ers. They covered the -14-point spread as favorites.

Wake Forest looks to build more confidence before ACC play begins after Christmas when it visits state-rival UNC Greensboro on Friday. The Demon Deacons have won two in a row after Tuesday’s 91-74 victory over Charlotte with John Collins continuing to be the driving force, and the 6-10 sophomore forward might need another big effort against a UNCG squad riding a six-game win streak.

Collins struggled with foul trouble much of the season, limiting his minutes to 23.1 per game, but boasts four straight double-doubles while averaging 18.1 points, 10.6 rebounds and shooting a robust 63.5 percent from the field. Wake Forest’s only losses are to No. 1 Villanova and Northwestern, but faces two more tough tests against No. 14 Xavier and LSU later this month before opening conference play against Florida State. This contest marks the 1,000th between members of the Southern Conference and the ACC, which is 810-189 in the series. The Spartans, who average more than 10 made 3-pointers per contest, hope to stretch their win streak to seven and match their longest run since the 2011-12 season.
