Last Time Out

This Week's Opponents
The Demon Deacons head to Milwaukee, Wis. to play in the Marquette Tournament.
On Friday, the Deacs will face No.23 Michigan at 1 p.m. before facing Eastern Illinois at 6 p.m. The following day, Wake Forest will play No.25 Northern Iowa at 11 a.m. followed by a match with host Marquette at 8 p.m.
The Deacs have only faced Michigan once back in 2007 in the Best Western/Sycamore Inn Classic in Oxford, Ohio in which the Wolverines won 3-0.
This will be the first time that Wake Forest has faced either Eastern Illinois, Northern Iowa or Marquette.
Wake Forest will return home on Sept.14 when they host the Black and Gold Challenge in Reynolds Gym. The Deacs will take on Toledo on Friday night, followed by matches against Campbell and Appalachian State on Saturday.
