    S BASKETBALL

    The Demon Deacons have responded after a four-game skid to capture back-to-back wins against Elon and Xavier. WF dealt the Musketeers a 63-57 defeat on Monday night in Cincinnati. Jen Hoover is in her sixth season at the helm, where she is 78-92 all-time at WF. WF is fourth in the ACC in 3-point field goal percentage defense, allowing opponents to shoot just 29.2 percent from the floor. Four players led by Elisa Penna (11.7 ppg) are scoring in double figures. Alex Sharp leads the team in rebounding at a clip of eight per game and a team-high 30 assists. Wake Forest gives up the second-most points per possession on defense at .897 points WF is allowing teams to shoot 18.7 free throws per contest, which is the most in the ACC, while the 14 points allowed per game is also an ACC high. The Deacons are 13th in the conference in field goal percentage at 39.2 percent

    STATISISTICAL COMPARISONS 5Things to Watch

    The Mountaineers are outrebounding their foes by an average of 40.7-37.3 in the last three games including 46 offensive rebounds (15.3 per game) and 12.3 second-chance points. Appalachian held a 46-42 edge, and 11-7 advantage in second-chance points at UNC. See if App can set the tone on the glass against a WF team that has a plus-6.0 margin in rebounding.

    In Wake Forests five losses this season, op-ponents are averaging 18.6 points per game at the free throw line, while teams are scoring just scoring an average of 8.5 in the Deacons four wins. App State shot a season-low five free throws at UNC. See if The Black and Gold can get to the line and take advantage of the opportunities.

    Appalachian has averaged 18 turnovers per game in the past three contests, which is better than the overall average of the Moun-taineers 22 miscues per contest. The Demon Deacons force oppo
