Wake Forest Demon Deacons

2012-13: 13-18 (6-12 ACC)
In-conference offense: 0.95 points per possession (10th)
In-conference defense: 1.03 points allowed per possession (8th)

The Wake Forest natives are restless, and at least one billboard calling for the firing of both head coach Jeff Bzdelik and athletic director Ron Wellman has made an appearance in Winston-Salem, N.C. (#BuzzOut.) In that atmosphere, searching for silver linings can look like missing the forest for the trees. But you already know Chris Paul's alma mater is just 11-39 in ACC regular-season play under Bzdelik, so here's something you might not have heard. Last season's 6-12 record could have been even worse.
