Pence's Quick Thoughts

This is the first true test for the talented Wake Forest freshmen class.  In looking at Pomeroy's profile of UConn, they look like the old man team from the YMCA that kicks everybody's butt.  They defensive rebound, they make free throws, and they don't turn the ball over.  As a result it should be a fascinating matchup for Wake Forest.  Unfortunately, I just don't think Wake is ready for that level of competition yet.

*******

Connecticut doesn't have a lot of size up front, but solid defense has helped it get off to an undefeated start.

To stay that way, the 23rd-ranked Huskies will have to slow down a Wake Forest team that opened its season with one of the top shooting performances in program history.

These teams will meet for the first time in 21 years on Friday night in the opening round of the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Huskies (2-0) don't have the most imposing starting front line in the nation in 6-foot-8 DeAndre Daniels and 6-9 Tyler Olander, but rookie coach Kevin Ollie has them playing at a high level on the defensive end, holding opponents to 55.5 points per game on 34.2 percent shooting.
