The blog and many other members of the Demon Deacon community greatly enjoyed Wake Forest's overtime victory over the Texas Longhorns last Thursday in the NCAA tournament. Saturday's loss to Kentucky was predictable, but just thinking of the Deacons being there was fun. Nate fell asleep during the second half on Thursday night (we were all up past our bedtime), but we woke him up to see the Deacons win on Ish Smith's jump shot with only 1.3 seconds left to play.
