Deacon Dump 2/10: Dunkfest '10

So the final score wasn't a 30 point blowout, but the game never really was in doubt in my mind even though BC sure made it close there. For awhile, that was the best offense Wake has played since the CP3 years. They were doing everything right and it was beautiful. We'll have all the youtubes of the game up later on today, so keep an eye out for that, but for now wet your whistle with some linkage.

Oh and big shoutout to Wake Forest golfer Brendan Gielow, who won the JU Invitational yesterday in absolutely horrific weather conditions. This Week @ Wake -- 02/09/10

My Take on Wake - Casting Call For A Quarterback |
"I think so but I’m not positive,‘’ Grobe said. "It’s funny, we were in practice one day this past fall and it’s a pretty easy throw in the flat and (Stachitas) kind of underthrew it. It was a little helicopter ball that went in the dirt. I said `Ted, what the heck was that?‘ He said `Yeah Coach, I used to be able to throw pretty good.‘ But that was earlier in the season. I thought by the end of the year that he was definitely throwing the ball down the field better with his intermediate throws and deeper throws. To me it seemed like he had a little bit of a problem sometimes on touch passes. Of course, what happens is you watch Riley throw one and then Ted comes in. So that’s part of the problem, is you’re always comparing everybody to Riley Skinner

My Take on Wake - Does Roy Wish He Had Ish? |
"And I think he’s doing it on both sides of the floor. He’s guarding and he’s scoring and he’s distributing. He really rebounds the ball too. Look at his rebounds (4.7 per game) from the point guard position. And Sylven Landesberg (of Virginia) is killing us on Saturday and we put (Smith) on the best player. He’s really playing well. There might be some guys playing as well as him in the league. I’m sure there are. But boy, oh boy, he’s playing at a high level.‘’

Observations: BC missing leading scorer, rebounder -
Wake Forest must be made for Tuesday nights. This is the second of three straight Tuesday night ACC games the Deacons are playing. Last week it was Miami in Winston-Salem and next week it will be a trip to Virginia Tech.

Deacons win an all-hands effort -
Skinner pointed to Wake Forest point guard Ish Smith, who had nine points and 11 assists, and said he will probably determine how far the Deacons go. "He's the fuel in their engine," Skinner said. "If he plays well, they clearly have a chance to play well. If he doesn't, they'll struggle. "A lot of people have the chance to (win the regular season) ... except maybe us and a couple of others."

Wake Forest senior wins JU Invitational at TPC Sawgrass |
No. 16 at the TPC Sawgrass Players Stadium Course was sweet indeed for Wake Forest senior Brendan Gielow — even after hitting the large tree on the left side of the fairway with his second shot twice in one day. Gielow recovered from those glancing blows off the bark to make eagle and birdie at the par-5 hole Tuesday, the difference in his one-shot victory over Kelvin Day of Charleston Southern in the Jacksonville University Invitational.

Is Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney the ACC Player of the Year? - Gobbler Country
Both are outstanding players, but neither should be considered for the ACC's player of the year. Both Wake Forest's Al-Farouq Aminu and Clemson's Trevor Booker are having better years and are more important to their team's The problem is the ACC media vote is dominated by guys from North Carolina who consider Duke players to be better than they are simply because they play for Duke.

"Stanford and Cal came down to see me last week," Caudill said. "Oregon State has been showing a lot of interest. Notre Dame wants me to go out there in April for their Blue/Gold football scrimmage. I’m also hearing from Wake Forest and I’m still very interested in Arizona State."

"I fouled Corey and he said a couple things," Williams said. "It really wasn’t nothing. I was walking back to the huddle and Tony just reacted. "I told him afterwards … ‘yo, when something like that happens, grab Wake guys, because if you grab Wake guys you’re not going to get in trouble like that.’ "

Deacons KO Eagles
"I did not see it at all," Gaudio said. "Ray came over to me and said, ‘Trust me, he hit them.' I go, ‘Ray, you say he hit him, he hit him.' I'm sure we'll see it on TV (last night). "I went to Mike Kitts as we came out for the second half and I said, ‘Mike what's the impact on the next game?' He said, ‘No, he can play.' I'll be honest with you, I don't know what the rule is. But it wasn't a fight or a punch. It's my understanding, according to Mike, he's fine for Saturday."

Smith has Deacons thinking of ACC title
Trailing by nine with about 2 minutes to go, Skinner pushed the button. Smith converted the first shot and misfired the second, which barely grazed the bottom of the net. Fellow senior Chas McFarland, the 7-foot center with the 1-inch mustache, could see the next foul coming. "Ish loves that," McFarland said. "He's the type of guy that if somebody tells him he can't do something, he's going to do it, just to prove them wrong. He loves that challenge. After he airballed that one, they sent him back to the line. I knew he was going to make both of them, and I don't think either one of them hit the rim."
