Deacon Dump 3/4: Surveying the wreckage

It's like I'm in a haze today. I feel like I dreamt everything from last night. But the harsh reality is that the team has lost four straight and is limping toward the finish with just one game before the ACC Tournament. A bye is all but gone now and Wake desperately needs a win on Sunday for not only their confidence, but to keep their NCAA chances alive. At least JTT won.

Who's wasting more talent: Georgia Tech's Paul Hewitt or Wake Forest's Dino Gaudio?
Watching Georgia Tech and Wake Forest on consecutive nights has me thinking these two teams have a lot of talent. Neither team is playing anywhere close to that talent level. Weeks ago I even stated if I had two pick 2 teams in the ACC most capable of making the final 4; I would have picked Wake Forest or Georgia Tech. These are physically gifted teams that simply are not playing well. It has to fall on the coaches Paul Hewitt and Dino Gaudio.

Grayson Murray of Raleigh, ranked among the nation's top-20 junior golfers by Golfweek magazine, has committed to play for Wake Forest. "I've wanted to go to Wake Forest since I was about 7 years old, but I knew I had to work hard on my game and continue to get better," said Murray, a sophomore at Leesville Road High who is ranked No. 2 in the nation in the Class of 2012 by Golfweek.

West Charlotte beats Dudley in closing seconds : : Greensboro & the Triad's most trusted source for local news and analysis
Like everyone else in the building, Dudley head coach David Price assumed the final possession was destined for J.T. Terrell's hands. West Charlotte coach Baronton Terry drew it up that way, envisioning the Wake Forest-bound guard to inbound the ball and then get it back for a full-court assault on the Panthers' one-point lead. Terrell thought so too, trailing frantically as 6-foot-5 teammate Anthony Estes -- who looked like a sumo wrestler chugging to go coast-to-coast -- hurried the ball up court when Dudley denied Terrell the ball. "I might have said his name 100 times," Terrell said.

Estes' shot puts Lions in 4A regional final -
That's when the Lions tried to get the ball to Terrell, but ended up making Estes a hero. "I won't lie," Terrell said. "I might have said (Estes') name 100 times, calling for the ball. I wanted it." Terrell finished with 20 points but made 6-of-17 shots. Guard Brandon Richardson continued his strong postseason play with 18 points on 7-for-10 shooting.

ACC women;s notes: Wake's guard money from way downtown : : Greensboro & the Triad's most trusted source for local news and analysis
If the opening game of the ACC Women's Tournament goes down to a long-distance buzzer-beater, Wake Forest's Courteney Morris could take the shot.

"Chris Singleton came over and closed out on me," Stewart said. "He's 6-9 and leading the ACC in blocked shots, so I'm not going to try to shoot over him. "I took my chance of taking one dribble and going to the basket. I went in and tried to make a play and unfortunately turned it over."

WFU women have high hopes
"We want to prove we belong because right now we are not in the NCAA Tournament and we have to keep winning if we want to get there," said Ray, who averages 11.1 points and is the team's No. 2 scorer behind Brittany Waters (13.6 ppg). "We still have a lot to prove, but we are ready to make a statement."

Wake Forest scored just 22 points in the second half and didn't hit a field goal over the final 6:23. "There were a lot of heroes tonight," FSU head coach Leonard Hamilton said. "I'm very proud of these guys. We've been kind of up and down, been inconsistent. We're still learning. But their attitudes have been great and they've responded each time we've had some adversity."

The Florida State Seminoles hold on down the stretch to beat Wake Forest -
During the final moments of their game here on Wednesday night against Wake Forest, Florida State players were having flashbacks of images they'd rather forget. It was impossible not to. They'd led the entire game against the Demon Deacons but once again things seemed to be slipping away. Just like they had in that loss against Clemson days earlier. "It was pretty much the same game," Seminoles point guard Derwin Kitchen said.
