WINSTON-SALEM — Wake Forest didn’t shoot well and played much of the second half without its top big man.

And yet, the Demon Deacons gave first-year coach Danny Manning the defensive effort and mental toughness he wanted to see.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.   — Road trips to LSU and third-ranked Arizona, along with an appearance in the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands, more than prepared Gardner-Webb for a Monday night date with Purdue.

The Bulldogs (8-5), who defeated ACC member Clemson in November, added a Big Ten Conference opponent to their list of victims.
