Deacon Dump: College Cup and more

Congrats to the Deacs in their win over UNC-W yesterday. Wake Forest struck first and really controlled the match after that. They are taking on Duke in an interesting ACC showdown on Sunday. It's a bit quiet since there were no basketball games and the bye week in football, but things should heat up this week with football preperations and some bball action.

"Austin's goal was a fantastic goal," Vidovich said. "Not only did we build it, but that's a special play with not only how Austin finished but the way Zack Schilawski kept the ball alive in that space to where it was played. "It was a special moment and those plays make the difference."

"I thought it was a great second-round game," Wake Forest coach Jay Vidovich said. "UNC Wilmington gave us a heck of a contest. Hats off to them and their performance. I'm very proud of my guys and their performance to get the result. I just see them getting better each game."

College Hoops: Television and dollars has the season starting earlier and running later, and it needs to change
Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, Carolina's Roy Williams and Wake Forest's Dino Gaudio seem interested in changing the format. Instead of starting formal practices around Oct. 15, those coaches have endorsed Nov. 1. They would like to return opening games to Thanksgiving weekend, the traditional date until a flood of tournaments joined the Springfield-Maui-Alaska mix. "I think all of us cherish our practice time," Gaudio said, "but the season is too long. Basketball encompasses two semesters, with first-semester exams and stuff. It's a long season, and then you throw in the exempt tournaments. To be honest with you, coaches fight to get into them. If you get in an exempt tournament, you can get more wins, which might help you get in the NCAA Tournament. It's a vicious circle."

Melvin Tabb of Enloe, who is headed to Wake Forest, is ranked No. 8 in the state and No. 87 nationally.

UNC, Wake meet in women's soccer :
The Tar Heels will host Wake Forest, a No. 3 seed, in the quarterfinals Friday at 2 p.m. at Fetzer Field. The Tar Heels have now posted eight successive shutouts. Carolina has not allowed a goal in the past 742 minutes and three seconds of play.

Blue Devils still have a goal -
"Every game, whether we've won or loss, is building," Cutcliffe said. "We're learning, we're believing, we're growing. We certainly want to win the Wake Forest game for our seniors, but I think the biggest thing is to show that we will go back and prepare. That we will go back and be as motivated as if we had three more games left."
