WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.- Something very important happened to all those young players at Wake Forest during the past year: They got older.
Coach Jeff Bzdelik also hopes they got better - and his future just might depend it.
One of the nation's youngest teams hopes it can take another step forward in its embattled coach's fourth season.
Bzdelik says it's "a results-driven business" and that "we need to win. That's what I get paid to do and that's what we've got to do."
Wake Forest started at least three freshmen in all but three games last season. Freshmen played more than 60 percent of the team's total minutes, and four of them were among the top six scorers.
Bzdelik says this year's sophomores "gained a valuable understanding of what's expected ... to win."
