Wake Forest showing progress in Danny Manning's 1st season

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Danny Manning isn't into moral victories. His first Wake Forest team has given him a few of them anyway. The Demon Deacons (9-9, 1-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) have played unexpectedly close in losses to then-No. 5 Louisville, then-No. 2 Duke and Syracuse. That's given them perhaps the most encouraging 1-4 start to league play in ACC history. But now with...

Gophers 84, Wake Forest 69

Ok so I was wrong.  Wake did get to the line a ton but didn't shoot well once there, the Gophers controlled their rebounding, and the Gophers shot the bell well and got a great night out of Andre Hollins.  Wake was as bad as I thought and the Gophers were just better.  It's nice to see them take care of business against an inferior opponent on the road, not that they'll have to...
