Meanwhile, Virginia came out on top in a nail-biter against the Virginia Tech Hokies on Wednesday, sneaking past 54-52. Having forecasted a close win for the Cavaliers, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Center Francisco Caffaro and guard Armaan Franklin were among the main playmakers for Virginia as the former had 16 points in addition to nine boards and the latter had 15 points along with five rebounds.

Virginia’s victory lifted them to 10-6 while Wake Forest’s defeat dropped them down to 13-4. We’ll see if Virginia can repeat their recent success or if Wake Forest bounces back and reverse their fortune.
