Wake Forest held on to beat Miami 72-70 on Wednesday night behind a barrage of threes from the Deacs. Our Fan Tweet of the Night from Megan was long-range brilliance as well.
Tre Fo is slang for Winston-Salem, NC, the 34th prison district and home of Wake Forest. And, in the first half at least, the threes were falling left and right for the Deacs as they shot 11-15 from beyond the arc in the first 20 minutes. Better yet, they missed their first four threes of the second half. Wait….
All told Wake took twenty-THREE THREES on the night en route FOURty-six percent from the field. The Deacs also had THIRteen offensive rebounds and THIRTY-seven total while surrendering FOURteen turnovers and FOURteen fouls. Fifty-THREE percent shooting from the line and FOUR steals on the night. No. 33 Aaron Roundtree the THIRD added THREE assists while No. 44 Konstantinos Mitoglou lead all scorers.
Megan, my dear, you have cracked the unbreakable code that is Wake Forest basketball this season. Who knew the Illuminati was running things at Tie Dye Nation all along.
