Deacs Going Dancing

Wake Forest has earned an at-large berth in the 2005 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. The Demon Deacons are the No. 2 seed in the Albuquerque region and will face 15th-seeded Chattanooga (20-10), champions of the Southern Conference in the first round. Tipoff is set for 7:10 p.m. at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland on the campus of Cleveland State University on Thursday. All NCAA Tournament games will be televised on CBS.

Wake Forest will have an open practice -- to both the public and the media -- at the Wolstein Center on Wednesday from 5:00-5:50 p.m.

If Wake Forest advances to the second round, the Deacons would play the winner of the West Virginia-Creighton game on Saturday at about 8:00 p.m.

All tickets for the Cleveland site are sold out.

The winner of that game will face either seventh-seeded West Virginia or 10th-seeded Creighton on Saturday.

Ten of Wake Forest's regular season opponents made the NCAA Tournament, including six non-conference foes. The complete list includes Arizona, Cincinnati, Duke, Illinois, Georgia Tech, George Washington, New Mexico, North Carolina, NC State and Texas. The Deacons went 10-4 in those games.

Wake Forest is making its 20th appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Last season, the Deacons reached the Sweet 16.
