WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest will look to bounce back from Tuesday's loss at Clemson when the Demon Deacons hit the road again for a game at Virginia Tech on Saturday afternoon in Blacksburg, Va. Tip-off is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Cassell Coliseum.

The Deacons are set to play four of their next six games on the road, including contests at Georgia Tech (Jan. 26), at Maryland (Feb. 2) and at North Carolina (Feb. 5).

Last Time Out
