“Meet me on the quad at midnight.” Following the Wake Forest basketball team’s massive win over #8 Louisville in a 9 p.m. contest, there was probably never a more fitting time to utter the late Skip Prosser’s beautiful words. Be sure to take in the gorgeous sights from last night. This is what joy looks like.
Many thanks to Addison Sutton for giving us permission to post her Instagram video of Wake Forest students and fans rushing the court following Wake Forest’s thrilling victory over Louisville.
HOW BOUT THEM DEACS!?!?! The work, the stress, the struggles, and all of love is so worth it. This has been without a doubt one of the best years of my life. I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to spend my days working to support these incredible athletes, who made so many dreams come true last night. If you are not a Deacon Club member, watch this, and get involved. If you are, spread the word. Come out and watch these boys in their last regular season game vs VT this Saturday at 4 pm at Foothills on 4th Street. See you there.

Our man Jake shows that he is truly a man of the people and got down on the court.
I love everything about this next picture. Three Wake guys celebrating a Wake victory by shotgunning a cold domestic brew. Exam in the morning? Who cares, these are moments that the students will be cherishing for the rest of their lives, and that’s far more important than getting an extra hour of sleep or preparation prior to an exam.
It wasn’t a dream. The quad was still rolled in the morning. What a beautiful win and a beautiful night. Here’s to many more during Danny Manning’s tenure at Wake Forest. Go Deacs!
