Pregame and Tickets for MBB at Wake

Saw this flyer at pregame tonight, first I heard of it, and we have basically one day to respond. Hummer says it was mentioned in the season ticket info, but I don’t have those materials anymore to confirm.

P.S. Judy is going to fire somebody for implying that “Charlotte 49ers” automatically equates to “MBB” by default. :stuck_out_tongue:

I bought two lowers behind Charlottes bench a while back on stubhub for 10.00 each. Last time I checked there were still a lot of lowers available for not much.

Ordered mine via the AD. Was told by VERY RELIABLE source they would be prioritized this week and mailed.

Hummer told me tonight they got a call from the restaurant, they’re out of business. I don’t know what Plan B is.

It is what you take to not give birth to another #badfan.

Lol you couldn’t make this shit up if you tried.

I would say unbelievable…not it isn’t.

Got this email from J. George:

“Greetings! I wanted to make you aware that there has been a delay in the delivery of the Wake Forest game tickets to our office. Unless informed by a future email, I expect to have them tomorrow. Therefore, please review the following ticket pick-up options.
at the Halton Arena Ticket Office:- Wednesday, Nov. 30 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm (49ers vs. JMU)- Thursday, Dec. 1 - 8:00am to 5:00pm- Friday, Dec. 2 - 8:00am to 5:00pm- Saturday, Dec. 3 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm (49ers vs. Oregon State)
at the Lawrence Joel Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum Visiting Team Guest Entrance/Table:- Tuesday, Dec. 26 - 6:00pm until Halftime
If you prefer mailing or alternative arrangements, please let me know.”

I assume the “Dec. 26” reference meant December 6.

Nice! I am not a big fan of their BBQ they have a cool game room and bar upstairs.

Anybody know the spread?

Was going to try and make the trip Tuesday but not sure since it’s a weekday. But are there any watch parties or a place you guys might be at to watch the game?

I think we will be better than the projected record. Curious to see how closely we can play Wake.

What lower level section do we have?

I got 207 via AD

Wake Forest is currently the 55th ranked team, per KenPom, Charlotte is 182nd. Pre-season inputs to the algorithm still playing a role in deciding rankings.

Wake’s best win is a road win at College of Charleston (103rd), and the Cougars just erased a 9-point halftime deficit to win comfortably at home against Davidson today. Charlotte’s best win as at Elon (120). Wake’s worst loss is to Northwestern (44th), ours, as flukey (hopefully) as it was, is to USC Upstate (243). KenPom projects an uptempo game and an 88-75 Demon Deacons win. The Niners have an 11% chance to win based on the Pythagorean expectation.

Rebounding will be an issue, it will be important to force a lot of misses from them and to shoot a high percentage ourselves. Wake is 92nd in Off. Rebounding %, and 120th in Def. Rebounding %. Wake is excellent at scoring inside, but considering our height dis-advantage we did a great job of limiting Oregon State scoring inside through double-teaming.

Both teams have been shooting great from 3-point range and from the free throw line. Charlotte hasn’t been great at getting to the line, until the Oregon State game but Wake has not let teams get to the line very often. Hopefully the trend from the Oregon State game continues.

Wake Forest’s offense has the 122nd ranked turnover rate, and Charlotte’s defense has the 50th ranked turnover rate. Charlotte’s offense has the 9th ranked turnover rate, and Wake’s Defense has the 287th Turnover rate.

The keys to Charlotte winning will be:

[ul][li]Capitalize on turnovers, force them relentlessly. Andrien White continuing to approach 100% will help this immensely.[/li]
[li]Have a hot night from 3-point range. Braxton has to get of his slump, he’s 5/25 from three the last four games. That can’t continue if we’re going to win.[/li]
[li]Get to the line and make free throws. We will need 40 minutes of 2nd-half Jon Davis to make this happen. [/li]
[li]Quentin Jackson’s suffocating on the ball pressure will be needed. Oregon State’s point guard was never comfortable in the 2nd Half on Saturday.[/li][/ul]
