ACC Daily Digest, Feb. 4: Wake continues to crater, plus the latest on Justin Robinson

It’s Monday. Time to chug a pot of coffee and get caught up on this weekend’s action and look ahead to tonight — as Virginia Tech hosts Louisville without Justin Robinson.


Wake Forest sinks even further

In the lone ACC game on Super Bow Sunday, things (predictably) didn’t go so well for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. On the road at Clemson, Danny Manning’s club fell by the score of 64-37.

For the game, Wake shot under 24 percent from the field (26.3 eFG%, 0.6 points per possession). It was an offensive disaster against the Tigers. With Brandon Childress in a slump, there’s simply no reliable production for Wake Forest.

Wake Forest (No. 187 in KenPom) has lost five straight games and falls to 1-8 in the ACC. The Demon Deacons have won just four games since the start of December — two of which came against Charlotte and Cornell.


Monday Night Hoops — 1 game, but it’s a good one

There’s only one ACC men’s basketball game tonight; however, it could be a fun one. Two days after a home loss to UNC, Louisville hits the road to Blacksburg — for a matchup with Virginia Tech.

In its first game without injured star point guard Justin Robinson, Virginia Tech slowed things down and defended like crazy in Saturday’s win over NC State — holding the Pack to 24 points, somehow.

Robinson isn’t expected to play on Monday against Louisville.


Deondre Francois dismissed from FSU

On Sunday, it was announced that Florida State has dismissed quarterback Deondre Francois due to allegations of abuse. This is a bad situation.
