Georgia Tech at Wake Forest, 7:30PM ET

Letdowns against inferior opponents have plagued Wake Forest over the past month. A loss to lowly Georgia Tech was especially perplexing.

After continuing their success against Top 25 teams, the eighth-ranked Demon Deacons look to avenge what was perhaps their most embarrassing defeat of the season when they host the last-place Yellow Jackets in an ACC matchup Wednesday night.

Wake Forest (19-4, 6-4) improved to 16-0 and earned the No. 1 ranking after a 78-68 win at then-No. 10 Clemson on Jan. 17. The Demon Deacons have beaten two ranked teams since and are 4-0 in such games this season.

After facing the Tigers, though, Wake Forest lost four of six before beating then-No. 25 Florida State on Saturday. That stretch included a Jan. 28 win over Duke - then the top-ranked team in the country - but also a last-second 76-74 loss to the Yellow Jackets (10-14, 1-10) three days later.

It is Georgia Tech's only ACC victory, and a prime example of the struggles Wake Forest has had against lower-tiered opponents. The Demon Deacons' last three defeats have been versus teams from the bottom half of the ACC standings.

Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio believes his team gets overconfident, leading to lackluster play.
