2019 ITA Men's Kickoff

Preview - Wake Forest Region

There probably won't be much excitement in this region as Wake Forest is a prohibitive favorite that should not get much of a challenge. Sean Hill has shown flashes of brilliance but this is another level that's going to be tough to contend with. Even if Wake sits Gojo like they did against Arizona State, you get Petros at 1. If Wake sticks to the lineup submitted BYU could have a chance against Solomon but that is probably their best chance for a point.

As will be the case in many regions, it is likely that the match between the 2 and 3 seeds will be the only chance for a competitive match. Memphis took a huge hit losing Ryan Peniston and Andrew Watson and looks to be rebuilding. That being said they managed to come out of the gate with an extremely impressive 5-2 win over Northwestern. Need we mention that #1 Chris Patzanovsky is one of our biggest followers? For that reason alone I should pick the Tigers, but I just can't bring myself to do it (sorry Chris).

All Wake in the final!

Predictions:

Old Dominion 4, Memphis 3
Wake Forest 4, BYU 0
Final: Wake Forest 4, Old Dominion 0
