8. Al-Farouq Aminu: What if the Los Angeles Clippers broadcast team has to deal with this name over the course of an 82-game season? It could happen. The outrageously talented Aminu is still a raw sophomore at Wake Forest but has what teams covet most: upside. He’s 6-8 but is a lonnnnng 6-8 and is one of the best rebounders in the collegiate game.

Don't sleep on Dino Gaudio and Wake Forest in our latest bracket projection.
"Right now I can’t even think about or worry about the postseason because we haven’t really put ourselves, in my opinion, in a position to consider that," Skinner said after his team fell to 12-11 overall and 3-6 in the ACC. "We’ve got to get ourselves some wins before we can start entertaining anything like that.
Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner – He made a name for himself his freshman year by taking the Deacons to their first ACC championship since 1970 and earning ACC rookie of the year honors. Four years and three bowl games later, Skinner ended his career as the top quarterback in Wake Forest history.
As it turned out, Coach Dino Gaudio of Wake Forest didn't even have to deliver the message he had planned for Sunday's practice. Seniors Ish Smith and L.D. Williams delivered it for him. "Ish Smith raises his hand and starts talking about Boston College and how bad they beat us up there two years ago," Gaudio said. "They crushed us. And he talked about how tough their guys are and how physical they play. "And all of a sudden, L.D. starts talking. And when we've got those players expressing themselves about the next opponent, I think it means even more than when we as coaches say it."
This is not a pretty team. Teams that miss a bunch of shots and turn the ball over rarely look good, at least not until the game is over. But defense and rebounding statistics reveal effort. And it’s hard to argue that any team in the ACC has given more effort so far this season than Wake Forest.
"He’ll be a point guard that understands the flow of the game. He’ll get the ball to the players he’s supposed to get it to. He can score when he needs to score and he loves to play defense," Cimmino said when asked to describe what Hinds will contribute at the next level. It’s still early but Cimmino says half a dozen schools are working the hardest on landing Hinds. "The people into him the most are Louisville, Virginia, Wake Forest, St. John’s, UNLV and Seton Hall," Cimmino said.
