Big Shots highlighted by Andrew White - ESPN
Chalk up another excellent event for him. He has made a name for himself with his stroke, but at Big Shots, he took his game to the next level with his work on the glass and the use of his athleticism. At this point, there's little doubt he's a high-major wing and multiyear starter for a big program. White is on the verge of transitioning from shooter to scorer. White indicated Wake Forest and NC State were on him the hardest, while Louisville is coming on strong. He's already visited Richmond, Old Dominion, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and NC State.

 

Melvin Tabb and Ty Walker Suspended Indefinitely by Coach Jeff Bzdelik - Blogger So Dear
Here we go again...http://wakeforestsports.cstv.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/071111aaa.html We will post more stuff when we have it, but this is in its early stages as is. I will try to find out more tonight at the Summer League. I really thought these guys had learned from last year and this was all behind us, but I guess some people just don't learn quickly at all. *sigh*

 

Roanoke Catholic boys basketball coach Hodges resigns - Roanoke.com
Bill Hodges, who came to prominence as head coach of the Indiana State men’s basketball team that featured Larry Bird, has resigned after one season as the head boys basketball coach at Roanoke Catholic. Hodges, 68, said he would have returned if Catholic had guaranteed him a teaching job for 2010-11. Hodges was interviewed for the athletic director’s job at Catholic before it was awarded last week to Jason Hannah, who coached the junior varsity boys basketball team at Catholic this past season.

 

Duke's David Cutcliffe tweaks staff - ACC Blog - ESPN
Duke coach David Cutcliffe has named Ben Loebner and John Russell as graduate assistant coaches on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, respectfully. Loebner, a 2009 Duke graduate, has spent the last two seasons on the Blue Devil staff as a recruiting assistant while Russell joins the program after lettering four seasons as a defensive lineman at Wake Forest, where he helped the Demon Deacons to a 33-19 record, including the 2006 ACC Championship.

Pearl's Howard continues to follow hoop dreams | The Clarion-Ledger | clarionledger.com

The college coaches have taken notice. Howard has scholarship offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Baylor, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgetown, Maryland, Wake Forest and West Virginia. Howard, who averaged 22.8 points (including a career-high 45) and 11.7 rebounds says he doesn't have a favorite among that list yet. "I'm just enjoying the recruiting right now and I'm just going to see how it all weighs out," said Howard.Prediction: ACC vs. Notre Dame - ACC Blog - ESPN

Notre Dame at Wake Forest, Nov. 5: Why did Wake Forest schedule this game? This is going to be an uphill battle for the Deacs. The good news for Wake Forest is that it's much deeper in the secondary this year, but there’s a reason Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd is on the Biletnikoff Award watch list. Floyd has joined his teammates for voluntary summer workouts and it sounds as if he is expected to return to the team. Regardless of who lines up at quarterback for Notre Dame, Wake's defense will have its hands full.

Examining the Atlantic: Wake Forest – Chopping Block – Seminoles Blog – Orlando Sentinel

The Deacs appear to be trending back toward some semblance of a successful team. Will that mean they’ll be challenging the Atlantic Division’s big boys for a spot in the ACC title game? Probably not. At least not yet. If they continue to trend this way, they’re still probably a few seasons away, at best. But, are they in position to be better than last year’s team? Definitely.
