First Four set to tip off on TSN GOBy Kelly Sanders Mar 15, 2017
Players are excited for the game and say they plan to "make the most of the opportunity".
The third-year Wake Forest coach will face his former in-state rival for the first time since that meeting in the 1988 Elite Eight on Tuesday when the Demon Deacons square off in an NCAA Tournament South Region matchup against the fellow-11th seeded Wildcats in a First Four game at Dayton, Ohio. Mount St. Mary's has some of the worst offensive statistics of anybody in the tournament, but it forces turnovers and has won 18 of its past 22 games, sweeping the Northeast Conference regular-season and tournament titles for its second NCAA bid in coach Jamion Christian's five seasons.
Of course, the first day isn't the most exciting, as the tourney kicks off Tuesday with two of the First Four play-in games, but there's still playoff seeding on the line. She is the 11th player in school history to reach 1,500 career points and is just one of four players in program history with 1,500 or more points and 800 or more career rebounds.
Junior Robinson, a 5-foot-5, 165-pound guard, is not to be overlooked, even if he blends into a crowd. "You look at him, he's 5-foot-5, 165 pounds". The 95 points they accumulated Tuesday were one shy of their season high. One year after winning just two games in the ACC and 11 games overall, Danny Manning guided Wake Forest to a 19-13 record and 9-9 in the ACC. Wins over Louisville, Virginia Tech, Miami-Fla, Bucknell, Charleston and N.C. -Greensboro is the main reason Wake is back in the tournament for the first time since 2010.
The last time UConn fell short of that was 2007, which, incidentally, was the a year ago that Drake made the NCAA field.

First Four: No. 11 Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs.
"Kansas is up tempo this year", Weber said.
Kansas State led at halftime, 40-36. "And we feel like we've got a solid foundation". "So I think it was kind of a trend". "And then limiting those easy post touches and easy post entries where they can get - we've got to protect the paint".
Wake forward John Collins said he knew this turnaround was possible. Kansas State made its first five shots and six of seven, while Wake Forest made seven in a row over one stretch. The over/under total for the game is listed at 148.5 points. He was absolutely nails on offense, turning handsome post moves into baskets and tipping misses back in for more points.
No First Four team is likely to go on a run, of course. The physical style of play kept the Demon Deacons at the line, where they converted 29-of-32 attempts, but it also contributed to the victory.
