WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.- The best thing about all those freshmen that dominated Wake Forest's roster last year is that now they're sophomores.
Only two current players saw the court for the Demon Deacons as recently as two seasons ago - and one of them didn't play last year because he was injured.
Coach Jeff Bzdelik hopes all those young players are growing up.
He said Tuesday during the team's preseason media day that they "gained a valuable understanding of what it's like to play at this level."
Wake Forest started at least three freshmen in all but three games last season and finished 13-18 for the second straight year.
Forward Travis McKie - the only fourth-year player on the roster - says he sees "a lot more confidence" out of the sophomores.
