The Last Meeting

Deacons Knock Off No. 18 NC State 86-84
Devin Thomas saved the first double-double of his career for the perfect time, scoring 25 points and grabbing 14 rebounds to lead Wake Forest to a 86-84 upset of No. 18 NC State 86-84 at Lawrence Joel Coliseum on Tuesday evening.
NC State (21-8, 10-6 ACC) is coming off a 70-57 win at Georgia Tech on Sunday in Atlanta. The Wolfpack have won five of their past six games after snapping a three-game losing streak in mid-February.
NC State leads the all-time series with Wake Forest, 136-100. In its 237th meeting, the series is the second-most frequent matchup in the ACC.
The series dates back to the 1910-11 season when the two schools were Raleigh-area rivals. Wake Forest took the first meeting, 33-6, and then went on to win 10 of the first 13 contests.
Wake Forest will wrap up regular season play by hosting Virginia Tech on Sunday, March 10. Wake Forest is looking to even the series with the Virginia Tech (13-16, 4-12 ACC) after suffering a heartbreaking 66-65 loss in Blacksburg in January. The Hokies are at Duke on Tuesday before playing in Winston-Salem.
The Deacons will then take their shot at an ACC championship, as the 60th annual ACC Tournament is set for March 14-17 in Greensboro, N.C. Wake Forest's last two Tournament titles, in 1995 and 1996, came at the Greensboro Coliseum.
