Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman says basketball coach Jeff Bzdelik will be back for a fourth season. In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Wellman re-affirmed his support for Bzdelik and said he is ''very encouraged about the future of our program.'' The Demon Deacons have had three straight losing seasons and no postseason tournament appearances under Bzdelik. He is 34-60 overall and 11-42 against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents. This year's young team went 13-18 with upset wins over No. 2 Miami and No. 18 North Carolina State with a roster that had only three available non-freshmen on scholarship. More than 60 percent of the team's minutes were played by freshmen and Wellman says the Demon Deacons ''are going to reap the benefits of that foundation.''
