The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and the Florida State Seminoles will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at Tucker Center.

ABOUT WAKE FOREST (9-3): The Demon Deacons don’t have the type of depth that Florida State possesses, but the seven players who contribute significant minutes get the job done at the offensive end. The backcourt duo of Bryant Crawford (14.3 points, 6.3 assists) and Keyshawn Woods (13 points) can score in numerous ways, as the latter shoots 50 percent from 3-point range while both hit better than 79 percent from the foul line. Forwards John Collins (17.3 points, 10.4 rebounds) and Dinos Mitoglou (11.3, 6.6) give Wake Forest a pair of capable post players who are effective at both ends of the floor and have combined for 30 blocks.

ABOUT FLORIDA STATE (12-1): The Seminoles are capable of having different players step up at the offensive end on any night, but they have a trio of standouts who consistently put up big numbers. Sophomore swingman Dwayne Bacon (16.9 points) leads the way and has scored in double figures in 22 consecutive games, while point guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes (10 points, 4.8 assists) has dished out at least five assists in five of his last six contests. Freshman Jonathan Isaac (12.9 points, seven rebounds) has added a post presence for the Seminoles, but he needs to get back on track after failing to reach double digits in scoring or rebounds the last three games.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Seminoles listed as 7.5-point favorites versus the Demon Deacons, while the game’s total is sitting at 162 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Wake Forest narrowly missed knocking off a ranked opponent on the road earlier this month and will get another shot when it visits No. 20 Florida State on Wednesday to open ACC play. The Seminoles have won eight straight contests and are off to their best start since 2003-04.

Florida State, which is back in action for the first time since posting a 76-68 win over Samford on Dec. 19, has 10 players averaging at least five points per game. “Our players have accepted the fact that the strength of the team is in the quality of the depth, which puts them in a situation where they all have to share the ball, playing time, and you have to have an unselfish spirit,” Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton told reporters. “Our guys are pulling for whoever is in the game at that particular time, and that shows that the guys are growing up and having a tremendous attitude.” The Demon Deacons have won four of their last five and are coming off an impressive 110-76 home victory over LSU on Thursday in which they made 16 3-pointers. Wake Forest, which has dropped its last four meetings with the Seminoles, has lost 14 straight road games against ranked opponents since registering a win at No. 24 North Carolina on Jan. 20, 2010.

Florida State was a 76-68 winner in its last match at home against Bulldogs. They failed to cover the -22-point spread as favorites.

In their last action, Wake Forest was a 110-76 winner at home against Tigers. They covered the -10.5-point spread as favorites.
