I guess the most positive thing you can say about Wake Forest's season is that it was better than the year before. The Deacs won 13 games, five more than the year before. The amount of bad losses last year were But more players defected after the season, and it would appear that the hot seat on Jeff Bzdelik is getting a little warm. In his two years at Wake Forest, Bzdelik is 21-42, and 5-27 in the ACC.

Who Stood Out: He may not be the best player on the team, but C.J. Harris was one of the most improved players in the ACC last season. He only averaged about three more minutes per game from the previous year, but his scoring average improved by over six points per game, his shooting percentage was up by nine percent, and his free throw shooting was up by about nine percent as well. He also committed fewer fouls and turnovers as well.

Looking Ahead: There's a lot of turnover on this team this year. Nikita Mescheriakov and Ty Walker graduated, and Tony Chennault, Carson Desrosiers, and Anthony Fields transferred. But on the plus side, there is a nice recruiting class coming in, led by Codi Miller-McIntyre, the point guard of the future.

Early Prediction: C.J. Harris will be the only senior on the roster next season. Travis Mckie will be back as well, but after that, most of the roster will be freshmen and sophomores. It will be a young and inexperienced team, and it wouldn't surprise me if Jeff Bzdelik's tenure at Wake Forest rides on this season. With the lack of experience outside of the top two, it would not surprise me if the Deacs end up near the bottom of the ACC next season.
