Wake Forest Tries To Stay Perfect In ACC Road Games

Jeff Bzdelik is in pain for obvious reasons. Give that man a hug or something.

Wake Forest's offense has been respectable at home, and the Deacs averaged more than 1.1 points per possession in their wins over NC State and Miami. Road games are a different story. Jeff Bzdelik has not been so successful at winning on the road since coming to Wake, and this year has changed nothing--Wake is 0-7 on the road in league play. (Let's not change that tomorrow okay thanks guys.)

Only once in those seven losses did they crack a point per possession, and they did so only by a nose, and it was against the league's worst defense. So it would be fair to say that scoring efficiently has been a bit of a problem away from Winston-Salem.

Overall, the Deacs are averaging about 0.94 points per trip in ACC games, and they rank 10th in 2FG% and eighth in 3FG%. They are also getting a whole heck of a lot of shots blocked. With little secondary support in terms of offensive boards (Chronic Brick Fatigue Syndrome strikes another poor program), things can get a bit ugly. Of course as I write this all I can think about is the first meeting and why did they have to go and do that to us those dang jerks.
