Year 1 for Steve Forbes as the Wake Forest men's basketball coach figures to come with its share of speed bumps for a reconstructed roster but also a boost of refreshing energy after several seasons full of roadblocks under the previous regime. Having lost their four top scorers from a 13-18 season last year, the Demon Deacons will feature many new faces in a cast of characters looking to turn around a program that went 78-111 in six seasons under former coach Danny Manning.
At 7:00 PM tonight, the Deacs travel to Historic Riggs Field to face the No. Clemson Tigers in a battle between two of the top teams in the ACC and the country. The Demon Deacons will travel to South Carolina with a 3-0-0 record and the nation’s top ranking, while the Tigers sport a 2-1-0 record and the nation’s third ranking.
