Predicting the final score of the 22nd Duke basketball game this season

Opponent: Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Date: Feb. 16 or 17

Time: To be announced

Location: Winston-Salem, N.C. (Lawrence Joel Veterans Coliseum)

Wake Forest’s record last season: 13-18 (6-14 in ACC)

Head coach:  Steve Forbes (130-43 overall record in five seasons as a coach, now entering his first season at Wake Forest)

Outlook on Wake Forest from Matt Norlander of CBS Sports: “The only coaching change in a major conference happened at Wake Forest, where Steve Forbes was pulled out of East Tennessee State to replace Danny Manning. Forbes has a mixture of characters to work around, but this is a 100% freebie of a season.”

Predicted final score: Duke 87, Wake Forest 75

Duke’s predicted overall record to date: 17-5 (12-3 in ACC)
