This Tuesday we’ll be able to calm our Christmas anxieties a bit by enjoying a college basketball matchup. When the Duke Blue Devils take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Dule is coming off a crushing win over Maryland-Eastern Shore with a final score of 82-55. While the Demon Deacons suffered a heartbreaking loss to Rutgers 81-57.
Wake Forest has had a tough schedule coming into this game with an 8-4 record. Their closest loss was to Rutgers, a good team, but now they have an equally or more difficult game. Tyree Appleby leads the offense with 18 points per game, followed by Cameron Hildreth with another 12. Overall the offense does not play bad averaging 70 points per game and has a perfect record when playing at home.
On the other hand, the Blue Devils have a good balance playing against very strong teams. Their most recent win was against Maryland-Eastern Shore where they won easily on the scoreboard. The offense is led by Kyle Filipowski averaging 15 points and 9 rebounds per game. He is followed by teammates Jeremy Roach with 13 points per game and Mark Mitchell with another 9. Filipowski has had very good games getting double figures in several games, not bad for a freshman. The team averages a total of 73 points per game, above average. But the strong point is the defense, allowing only 58 points.
Duke is without a doubt a very good team, although this will be the first time they go on the road and face a team with a perfect record at home. Filipowski gets nervous against strong opponents or difficult situations, let’s hope this is not the occasion. And Wake Forest on the other hand has the offense to keep up with Duke, this will be an interesting game.
