Wake out to end 17-game ACC road losing streak
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest's road trips always seem to end the same way — in defeat.
While the Demon Deacons have been unbeatable at home this season, they've been simply terrible away from Winston-Salem.
They bring a 17-game losing streak in Atlantic Coast Conference road games into Wednesday night's visit to Virginia Tech. They're 1-27 in league road games under fourth-year coach Jeff Bzdelik.
Tuesday marked the two-year anniversary of his only ACC road win, a 71-56 victory at Boston College in 2012.
They're a vastly different team at home — where they're 11-0 and have won 22 of 27 since last year.
Forward Travis McKie says the Demon Deacons have to play "five versus five, and not five versus the crowd."
