WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest is set to host NCAA Division II Brevard in an exhibition game on Friday at the LJVM Coliseum. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Friday's game will be streamed live online as part of the Wake Forest All-Access subscription package. Fans can purchase a monthly subscription for $9.95 or a yearly subscription for $79.95. Both packages allow fans to also access live radio broadcasts of the Demon Deacons' home and away contests.

Wake Forest returns nine scholarship letterwinners, including four starters, off last year's team. The Demon Deacons feature two-time All-ACC performer Travis McKie, who is the ACC's leading returning career scorer and rebounder.

The Deacons also return sophomore starters Arnaud William Adala Moto, Codi Miller-McIntyre and Devin Thomas. The trio combined for 79 starts during their rookie campaign.

Brevard returns five letterwinners from last year's squad, including leading scorer Dominique Pickett (15.6 ppg) and leading rebounder Miles Leathers (5.4 rpg). Under second-year head coach Lee Burgess, the Tornados also return 2012-13 South Atlantic Conference All-Freshman Team selection Manzey Miller.

Brevard, located in the town of the same name in western North Carolina, was picked to finish 11th in the SAC 2013-14 preseason coaches' poll.

Wake Forest and Brevard have never met previously on the hardwood during exhibition or regular season play.

The Deacons will open regular season play next Friday, Nov. 8, when they host Colgate at 7 p.m. at the LJVM Coliseum. Wake Forest will play at home for the first five games of the season before traveling to the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Wake Forest in Exhibition Play

Wake Forest has gone 17-2 in exhibition play since the start of the 2000-01 season. The Deacons have won each of their past 11 exhibition contests, including last season's 73-66 defeat of Division II Rollins.

The last time Wake suffered defeat in the preseason came in 2003 when Athletes in Action pulled out a miraculous win at the Joel. Then-freshman Chris Paul converted a three-point play on a fastbreak with two seconds to play, giving Wake a 75-74 advantage. However, AIA's Donte Quinine hit a 30-footer as the buzzer sounded to send the visitors to victory.
