Non-conference college basketball features the Davidson Wildcats visiting the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

The Davidson Wildcats had racked up five straight wins before a 77-75 OT loss to Temple as a three point underdog on Saturday ended their run. Davidson appeared to have the momentum with an eight lead at the break but 16 giveaways gave Temple six more shot which was about the only difference.

Luke Frampton kept the Wildcats upset hopes alive with 24 points and three yanks on 8-9 accuracy with seven makes from beyond the arc while Carter Collins added 16 points and eight rebounds on 5-9 from the field. KiShawn Pritchett gave Davidson 12 points, five boards and seven assists followed by a combined 19 points and eleven rebounds from Luke Brajovic and Jon Axel Gudmundsson.

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are shooting for consecutive victories after routing Charlotte 80-56 as a ten point favorite. Wake Forest took a ten point lead after 20 minutes and continued to press the issue with 44.3% shooting and a 20-9 edge at the charity stripe overwhelming the 40% shooting 49ers.

Isaiah Mucius topped a balanced Demon Deacons offense with 16 points and four pulls 6-10 marksmanship while Chaundee Brown and Olivier Sarr added 14 points each and a combined 14 rebounds. Wake Forest saw 13 points and five rebounds from Brandon Childress followed Jaylen Hoard with 12 points and eight boards on 5-8.

Davidson Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and Davidson Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and Davidson Wildcats are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 vs. Atlantic Coast. Wake Forest Demon Deacons are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 vs. Atlantic 10 and Wake Forest Demon Deacons are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games and Wake Forest Demon Deacons are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall.

If Kellan Grady plays I think Davidson gets this one as the better team…

Pick:
Davidson -2

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
