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...

52-point second half keys true road win for Gophers

For the first 20 minutes of Minnesota’s portion of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge it looked like the same under-achieving team that had somehow become the new normal was once again taking the floor. With faulty ballhandling and an inability to maintain momentum, the Gophers looked just as lost in the half-court offense as they had in both games out in New York City. But behind a raucous...

Game Preview: Gophers vs. Wake Forest

This Wake game just sucks.  Really sucks.  It's a total no win, big loss situation.  Wake Forest is not a very good team and they just lost at home to a horrendous Delaware State club so they shouldn't be scary.  That also means a win against them will mean nothing for their March hopes, and a loss will be a big black mark.  They'll be on the road, where they're always shaky...

Gophers can pick up a road win at Wake Forest if they don’t beat themselves first.

Anyone who followed the end of the Tubby Smith era and the mercifully short coaching search, no matter which candidate they were backing or their feelings about Tubby, could agree on one thing. At least we aren't Wake Forest.
