They attacked Miami’s big men, they took advantage of transition opportunities, they made the Hurricanes pay for their poor rotations, and they made their open looks. It sounds simple because it was, which is why Wake Forest deserves a ton of credit for this win. They made beating the No. 2 team in the country look easy.”

After he applied for a hardship waiver, Chennault’s brother, Mike Jay, was killed in a shooting. So when the NCAA decided to grant his request, the healing process began.”

    To NC State,

    Man, you guys are cleaning house with recruiting! Pretty soon I won’t be able to make fun of your fans anymore for hilariously overrating their teams, especially with Coach Gottfried at the helm. I’m not sure how I feel about that, because it means less schadenfreude, but I guess I’m pretty okay with the possibility of a genuine challenger to Duke and UNC for the foreseeable future. Of course, that’s contingent on the assertion that there’s not some unbelievable collapse involved, but Sidney Lowe isn’t at the helm now so I think you’ll be alright. Be careful though, pride comes before the fall. We would know. Insert 2009 here.

  8. Winston-Salem City Council to renew talks about selling Joel Coliseum, Bowman Gray Stadium | JournalNow.com

    The council has been considering selling both Joel Coliseum and Bowman Gray Stadium for several years to save money. The city has lost about $850,000 a year for the last five years operating both facilities. In addition, the city spends $1.5 million annually on debt payments on both venues.

    City officials said last year that Joel Coliseum was worth around $8.8 million. They have not explicitly said what their asking price may be for Bowman Gray.

    Wake Forest University is the likely buyer for Joel Coliseum, and Winston-Salem State University is the likely buyer for Bowman Gray Stadium. Both have expressed interest in purchasing the respective venues.

    Wake Forest pays about $660,000 a year to rent Joel Coliseum for the university’s basketball games.”
