No. 1 Wake Forest (25-5) vs. No. 9 Saint Louis (23-7) NCAA TOURNAMENT


What: Second round, NCAA East Regional.

Where: Baltimore Arena.

When: Today, approximately 2:40 p.m.

TV: Channel 13.

First-round results: Wake Forest routed North Carolina A&T;, 79-47. Saint Louis defeated Minnesota, 64-61, in overtime.

Outlook: North Carolina's loss to Boston College last year was the only time since 1990 a No. 1 seed didn't get to the Sweet 16, but Demon Deacons center Tim Duncan said that reminder was irrelevant to Wake Forest's focus. The Demon Deacons have won 11 in a row, are playing together and have a considerable size advantage on the Billikens. Saint Louis is perimeter-oriented, but Wake Forest can stretch its defense with Duncan in the middle.
