Get to know Wake Forest

Wake Forest comes in at 5-3 with a blowout victory over Charlotte, 80-56 eleven days ago. Head coach Danny Manning was hoping for that result before the regular exam break…

“You don’t want to go into (an 11-day break for exams) with a bad taste in your mouth,” coach Danny Manning said. “Let me take that back. A team does not want to go into the break with its coach having a bad taste in his mouth.”

Freshmen are three of the Deacs’ top five scorers with Jaylen Hoard at 15.0 ppg, Isaiah Mucius at 10.0 ppg and Sharone Wright, Jr. at 8.5 ppg

Freshman show a bright future for Wake Forest, but this is guard Brandon Childress team. The junior leads the Demon Deacons in points (16.9), assists (4.4), steals (1.9), FG% (52 percent), 3-PT% (48 percent) and FT% (83 percent). The team will go as far as he can take them.

  • TO/GAME: 13.6
  • OFF RBS/GAME: 38.8
