The 2014 ACC Tournament kicks off on Wednesday, and the first game of the slate pits two relatively “famous” programs together with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons taking on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
Although this particular match-up is between the #12 and #13 seeds, respectively, there is no shortage of talent on the floor on both sides. Wake Forest knocked off the highly-ranked Duke Blue Devils last week when they put together one of their best all-court games of the season, and the Demon Deacons do have that type of upside. It’s been a balanced team all season with just above-average units on both sides of the ball, but if there is something they are quite good at, it is ball movement, and that is a skill that should play well against ND.
For Notre Dame, it hasn’t been a banner season, but the Irish do have victories over both Indiana and Duke on their list of accomplishments, and that counts for something. Notre Dame has one of the better offenses in America (scoring 112.5 points per 100 possessions), and because of that, they play a highly entertaining brand of basketball that should keep the mid-day viewing audience engaged from the opening tip.
