How to watch Louisville vs. Wake Forest: Live stream, TV channel, start time for Wednesday’s NCAAB game

Who’s Playing

Wake Forest @ Louisville

Current Records: Wake Forest 11-1; Louisville 7-4

What to Know

The Louisville Cardinals are 5-1 against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons since January of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Wednesday. U of L and Wake Forest will face off in an ACC battle at 8 p.m. ET at KFC Yum! Center. The Demon Deacons should still be riding high after a win, while the Cardinals will be looking to right the ship.

U of L came up short against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers two weeks ago, falling 82-72. Guard Noah Locke (20 points) was the top scorer for U of L.

Meanwhile, Wake Forest skirted by the Charlotte 49ers 82-79 two weeks ago thanks to a clutch half-court bomb from forward Isaiah Mucius with 0:01 left to play. Guard Alondes Williams had 34 points and seven assists along with eight rebounds, and this makes it back-to-back games in which he has scored at least 41% of Wake Forest’s points.

The Cardinals are the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, though, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in four of their six home games.

U of L is now 7-4 while Wake Forest sits at 11-1. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: U of L have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 38.70%, which places them 33rd in college basketball. But the Demon Deacons enter the matchup with a 48.70% field goal percentage, good for 28th best in college basketball. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
