Deacon Dump 4/19: Hawks have fun with Teague, Lady Deacs capture ACC

Happy Monday to everyone. After a long but fun weekend, it's time to get a jumpstart on the week. The women's golf team captured the ACC title over the weekend. The team has been getting better and better the last three years and the ladies are really clicking right now. We got the great news that Travis McKie and Carson Desrosiers will remain  Demon Deacons. As time goes by, hopefully the good news spreads. Here are your links for today.

Hawks hope to avoid letdown after Game 1 win - NBA-
After Teague put up career highs in points and assists in a meaningless game against Cleveland to close the regular season, the veterans decided to remind the guy everyone calls "rook" of the locker room pecking order. Someone — Teague is sure Josh Smith was the culprit — filled the youngster's luxury car with popcorn all the way up to the dashboard.

Recruiting: Guard set to follow Brownell to Tigers - Tigers -
Northwestern defensive lineman Roderick Byers (6-4, 250) added Clemson to his offer list last week. The Tigers join USC, Wake Forest, Maryland and Texas Tech. He is favoring USC ahead of Clemson, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. Florida CB now has four offers
Harmon Brown may lack ideal size at 5-9 and 165 but he can sure play. He finished last season with 47 tackles and three picks while becoming known as one of the top cover guys in the whole area. Now Brown's getting recruited like it. "I had offers from Wake Forest, FIU, and FAU," Brown said. "I just got a new one from Wisconsin."

"We gave up a lot of shots there on the front nine, but they came back and held it together," Wake Forest head coach Dianne Dailey said. "They really showed what true champions they are."

Daily Herald | Deng wants Bulls to silence LeBron's supporting cast
JJ on hold: Rookie forward James Johnson spent some time guarding LeBron James during the regular season, even starting against the Cavs on March 19 while Luol Deng was out with a calf injury. Johnson didn't see the court in Game 1 until the Bulls emptied the bench with 40 seconds remaining. He was moving around on the practice court Sunday, so his partially torn plantar fascia doesn't seem to be holding him back.

Shin paces WFU women: Freshman is medalist as Deacons win 2nd straight ACC crown
The individual race was close with freshman Michelle Shin of Wake Forest winning medalist honors with a 2-under-par 211 for a one-stroke victory. Shin is the first freshman to win individual honors since Duke's Amanda Blumenherst won the title in 2006. "It feels really good. That's about all I can say," Shin said. "I've been playing well for the last few weeks, so it felt really good to play consistently this week and pull it out in the end." Pitt Jam Fest: Day Three Rundown
Led by Tyler Lewis, Tony Kimbro, Jackson Simmons and Adjehi Baru, Team Loaded, from Virginia, captured the 17’s crown over Ohio Basketball Club and active forward Chane Behanan. Lewis, the consummate point guard, tossed out double digit assists in a number of games. But in the championship Kimbro, Simmons and Adjehi were big in the put up big scoring efforts. Kimbro finished with 16 points, while the two big men tossed in a dozen each.

Golf News | Golfweek | Wake Forest wins second straight ACC title
A year after dethroning Duke as Atlantic Coast Conference champions, Wake Forest has gone back-to-back. The Demon Deacons, No. 12 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, won their second consecutive ACC title Sunday, hanging on for a four-shot victory over No. 18 Virginia. Wake Forest, which held a 15-shot lead to start the final round, closed with a 14-over 298 at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., to finish at 17-over 869.

Patrick Robinson (Florida St.), Devin McCourty (Rutgers), and Kareem Jackson (Alabama) are also possibilities at No. 24, although they could still be on the board at 37. Dominique Franks (Oklahoma), Chris Cook (Virginia), and Brandon Ghee (Wake Forest) also have high grades. College Basketball - Which ACC school made the best hire?
New Wake coach Jeff Bzdelik's teams have recorded winning records in just two of his seven seasons, though he admittedly has worked at programs with losing traditions. Bzdelik does have major-conference experience at Colorado, but I'm not convinced he can recruit any better than Brownell or Donahue. Brownell's winning history makes him the safest pick.

CC’s Carson Desrosiers to stay at Wake -
The 6-foot-11 center wavered a bit when Dino Gaudio was fired as coach at Wake Forest two weeks ago. But Desrosiers met with new Demon Deacons coach Jeff Bzdelik and felt comfortable according to his high school coach, Rick Nault. "I just spoke with Carson," Nault said. "The two met earlier in the day, and Carson liked him and is going to go there."
