Deacon Dump 3/1: Put it behind you and start anew

That said, I think the guys have had enough time to look at the last two weeks and now is the time to start over. Everything up to this point is done and over with and it's a two game season leading up to the ACC Tournament. FSU Wednesday, Clemson Saturday. That's it. With L.D.'s comments to Dan Collins, that's the mentality I'm hoping the whole team shares. So let's start the week off fresh.

6) Wake Forest Demon Deacons (18-8, 8-6) Last week - 5 The Deacs are sweating a little now. They are on a three-game losing streak and just lost 77-68 at home to the ACC's last place team North Carolina. What I especially didn't like about Wake's play was how uninspired they looked. The Heels just appeared to play harder and with more urgency. With a road game at Florida State on March 3 and then a tough Clemson team at home on Sunday. Wake Forest needs to pick up their play. They are safely in the NCAAs today, but lose both and it starts to get dicey. Hamm Likes Several Schools
