Last night at Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C.


In what is no doubt a regular occurrence at Wake Forest home games this season, a video montage of the program’s history is shown just before the Demon Deacons’ starters are introduced. The image of late coach Skip Prosser on the video board drew the biggest cheer from the crowd. Prosser, who coached six seasons at Wake, suffered a fatal heart attack in July.


9:10 Stretch without a field goal to finish the game for Maryland. The Terps missed their final nine shots from the floor but still closed out Wake Forest at the foul line.


Senior forward Bambale Osby had a good reason for his first scoreless night of the season — an ear infection that sent him to the campus infirmary earlier this week.

“It’s kicking my [butt], man,” Osby said. “I’m feeling like a little girl. I couldn’t hold the ball.”

Osby was uncharacteristically sluggish, grabbing four rebounds and committing three turnovers in 24 minutes.
