9-7 ACC

vs. no. 12 Wake Forest, 2 p.m. today, WRAL, WRDU-106.1

Starting lineup

G Biko Paris 9.9 ppg, 3.5 apg

G Reggie Jackson 18.3 ppg, 4.5 apg

G John Cahill 2.0 ppg, 1.1 rpg

F Corey Raji 12.7 ppg, 6.6 rpg

F Joe Trapani 14.4 ppg, 7.2 rpg

Coming in hot: Corey Raji has found his scoring touch during BC's three-game winning steak (19.0 per game), which has coincided with his return to the starting lineup for the first time in a month.

Number to know: 9.1 3-pointers made-per-game by the Eagles, an emphasis under first-year coach Steve Donahue. BC boasts the fifth-best mark in the country in converted 3-pointers.

Contender or pretender: Given BC's unexpected success this season, nine ACC wins from the team picked in the preseason to finish 10th, it's unwise to underestimate Donahue. But really, it's asking too much of Jackson, Raji and Trapani to win four games in four days, especially for a team with no interior options.
