Jeff Teague's decision to leave school early will put plenty of pressure on Wake Forest senior guard Ishmael Smith, who started for the Demon Deacons his first two seasons before coming off the bench last season. Wake forward Al-Farouq Aminu said he believes his teammate is up for the challenge. Smith has reduced his turnover total each of his three seasons and was named the Deacons' most improved player last season. Aminu, who worked out at the LeBron James Skills Academy this summer, singled out Smith for praise while talking about the Deacons' improved focus this offseason. "He looks tough out there," Aminu said. "I've seen some of the top point guards in the country out at these camps, and I don't see anything they can do that he can't."
