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 has now turned in two of the 10 worst shooting performances in school history in back-to-back games.

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.

Speaking of Virginia Tech: Justin Robinson
Robinson isn’t expected to play on Monday against Louisville.

Deondre Francois dismissed from FSU
The Deondre Francois news comes after a video allegedly capturing a domestic dispute between him and a young woman made its way onto social media last night. With him gone, James Blackman immediately becomes the favorite to start.
