Tonight Xavier faces off with Wake Forest in the Skip Prosser Classic. We have a ton of coverage already on the site previewing the game, so definitely check that out. Before the game we got the chance to sit down with our good buddy Robert Reinhard from Blogger So Dear to talk about the game. Let's see what he had to say.
1.) This Wake Forest team has some good resume wins like UCLA and Indiana, but lost to Richmond and is not very high in the KenPom rankings. How is the temperature in Winston-Salem?
I think a lot of Wake Forest fans are cautiously optimistic. Wake has had some strong wins over Indiana and UCLA. Our point differential is not very good. Wake is 5-0 in games decided by 5 points or fewer, and up until Friday's win over Coastal Carolina, Wake Forest had only outscored its opponents by 3 or 4 points combined. There's also a lot of room for improvement on the defensive end.
