Wake Forest Demon Deacons official site/ men’s basketball,  {Click here}.

Wake Forest University has an enrollment of just 6,444.   Nevertheless,  the Wake Forest Men’s Basketball team drew an average of 11,899 per game last season,  31st highest in the country.   But the school’s basketball program is perpetually overshadowed by two nearby giants…the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke Blue Devils.  And the Demon Deacons only Final Four appearance was in 1962. 

Wake Forest baslketball coach Dino Guadio stepped up from assistant coach when coach Skip Prosser died of a heart attack in the summer of 2007. 

On Monday,  January 19th,  Winston-Salem’s Demon Deacons became #1 in the nation for the first time since a two week run in November, 2004.   They are the only unbeaten team left in Division I,  with a 16-0 record.    Wake Forest beat #10 Clemson by 20 points last Saturday, but their big statement was their three-point victory over the Tar Heels on January 11th  {see this article, by Seth Davis at}.

Hey, look what I just found…a map of all Divison I basketball teams, from (where else ?) Wikipedia  {Click here}.   PS, don’t hold your breath for my version of this map…doing the 2009 65-team March Madness map is as ambitious as I will get in this department.
