No. 10 FSU (13-2, 3-1 ACC) at Wake Forest (8-5, 1-2 ACC)

Time/TV: FSU at Wake Forest, 7:30 p.m. on Fox Sports Sun/ESPN app.

FSU potential starters: G Devin Vassell (11.9 ppg., 4.7 rpg.), G Trent Forrest (12.1 ppg., 4.0 assists), G M.J. Walker (11.3 ppg., 2.3 rpg.), F Malik Osborne (6.2 ppg., 5.2 rpg.), F RaiQuan Gray (5.9 ppg., 3.8 rpg.).

Wake Forest potential starters: G Chaundee Brown (13.3 ppg., 6.5 rpg.), G Adrien White (7.9 ppg., 3.8 rpg.), G Brandon Childress (15.7 ppg., 4.6 assists), F Ody Oguama (2.8 ppg., 3.9 rpg.), F Isaiah Mucius (7.0 ppg., 4.4 rpg.).

FSU will win if: The Seminoles avoid the letdown after an emotional win over a top-10 Louisville team on Saturday. FSU will need to avoid foul trouble with Balsa Koprivica expected to be out. If Walker can turn in another good shooting night and complement the performances from Vassell and Forrest.

Wake Forest will win if: The Demon Deacons guards, led by Childress, are effective. Wake excels at getting to the free-throw line and making teams pay. The Deacons will have to get Olejniczak in foul trouble.
