Wake Forest Head Coach, Danny Manning, is looking at a bleak tunnel. If he can’t turn this team around in the upcoming conference play, he can start planning his tv schedule.

It’s no secret that Wake Forest is struggling to find their footing in college basketball. Wake is almost nonexistent in an incredibly difficult conference and oftentimes suffering from media coverage. But what can change that? Manning is hoping that under the leadership of Brandon Childress, he can find the recipe for turning around a program that even their fans dont want to support.

Heading into their first conference play, Wake Forest walked into Georgia Tech confident that this would be their marking in conference play, but Tech had other plans. With the highest point total under head coach, Josh Pastner, Tech swarmed the Deacs with lockdown defense forcing 13 turnovers and 11 steals; it should also be noted that they shot 60% from the field. Georgia Tech also succeeded in having four players in double figures, James Banks III (20) Michael Devoe (16), Brandon Alston (14) and Jose Alvarado (13).

While singing GT praise for phenomenal play, Wake Forest point guard, Brandon Childress, kept the Deacons in play with crazy three-point shooting from nearly half the court which lead to a career high of 28 points. Wake Forest does have a silver lining, they succeeded in beating Tech on the offensive boards and doubling points off of turnovers. Sadly, they didn’t execute it enough to bring home a win to NC.

Wake Forest can’t wallow too long in defeat, they face the giant up the road, Duke Universtiy on Tuesday.

Georgia Tech faces Virginia Tech on Wednesday.
