Danny Manning Wake Forest Deacons Early Offense
I really like the Danny Manning Wake Forest Deacons Early Offense that I watched as the Wake Forest Deacons played Buzz Williams of Virginia Tech. I like the action of the Danny Manning Wake Forest Deacons Early Offense with a back screen and ball screen. They aren’t playing well, but I do like this early offense and think that you might like it too.
The Wake Forest Deacons with Jeff Bzdelik were 17-16, including 6-12 in ACC play, and finished 118th in Ken Pom in his first year. Coach Jeff Bzdelik was beloved on campus and very popular even through the results weren’t what the athletic director wanted.
Coach Manning’s first season at the helm involved a lot of turnover in their roster. He did retain Codi Miller-McIntyre as well as Devin Thomas. They put together a strong 2014 recruiting class too. The Danny Manning Wake Forest Deacons went 13-19 overall, and 5-13 in ACC play. The team finished 124th in Ken Pom, but the team showed promise. Coach Manning got the team to play hard on the road in most situations which was something that wasn’t happening with Bzdelik. They had a very good 2015 recruiting class and the fans were very encouraged for this season.
The Deacons started off hot and went 9-3 against a very difficult non-conference schedule, and this was without Codi Miller-McIntyre, Cornelius Hudson, and Rondale Watson for stretches of that schedule. ACC conference play hit, and they lost at Louisville, fell apart against Duke, before beating N.C. State at hoe and keeping the NCAA Tournament hopes alive. Then it just spiraled out of control.
The Danny Manning Wake Forest Deacons are now just 11-18 overall, including just 2-15 in ACC play, and will almost definitely lose at Duke on Tuesday night. The Deacs are 135th in Ken Pom despite returning nearly everyone, and adding a top 30 recruiting class. Coach Danny Manning is probably going to go 0-18 on the road in ACC Play too.. He won a number of impressive road/neutral site games in non-conference, but that has not translated to the conference season.
In today’s college basketball landscape, it’s important to pick the right job. Danny Manning had it rolling at Tulsa and went to Wake Forest. Year one was a mild success, year two was a major disappointment, and now year three will have the team fighting to make the NIT.
