John Collins
Wake Forest sophomore forward John Collins (208-F-97) was named ACC Player of the Week, conference officials announced Monday (Feb. 20). Collins posted a pair of double-doubles in road games at Clemson and Duke last week.

The 6-10 native of West Palm Beach, Fla., averaged 30.0 points and 12.5 rebounds in the contests, shooting 78.1 percent from the floor and 90.9 percent from the free throw line.

On Tuesday at Clemson, Collins set a new career high with 29 points on 12-of-14 shooting from the floor and 5-of-5 from the line. He also grabbed 10 rebounds to record his 12th double-double of the season.

He followed with a career-high 31 points and 15 rebounds Saturday at No. 12 Duke. It was the first 30-and-15 game by an opponent at Cameron Indoor Stadium since Al Thornton of Florida State had 37 and 15 in 2006 and was the first 30-and-15 game by a Demon Deacon since Rodney Rogers in 1993 (31 and 15 at Florida State). Collins' 31 points came on 13-of-18 shooting from the field and 5-of-6 from the line. His 15 rebounds were one shy of a career high.

It is the second honor of the season for Collins, who also won the award on Jan. 23. He becomes the first Demon Deacon to earn multiple ACC Player of the Week honors in a season since Jeff Teague in 2008-09.

The Demon Deacons (15-12, 6-9 ACC) return to action Wednesday as they host Pitt. Game time at the LJVM Coliseum is 7 p.m. and the contest will air on the Regional Sports Networks.

New UNT head coach Grant McCasland brought Dowling with him from Arkansas State, where both coached last season. Dowling is from the Virgin Islands and is a coach with their national team program in the offseason. Frederi...   [read more]

Collins selected by the Hawks - 2 days ago
Atlanta is probably the most populated city where Virgin Islanders call home in the United States. Make room for one more as John Collins (208-F-97) was selected by the Atlanta Hawks at the 2017 NBA Draft. Collins played an instrumental role in bringing Wake Forest out of the basement of the ACC and leading them back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010. He will now have an opportunity to bump heads with rap sensation Rock City and Benny Demus. Collins was selected 19th ov...   [read more]
It's been 20 years since Spurs drafted Duncan - 4 days ago
SAN ANTONIO - Time flies when you're having fun and that can't be more true for Tim Duncan who was drafted by the Spurs 20 years ago. The San Antonio Spurs posted a tribute video on Facebook of Duncan by throwing it back to Draft Day 1997 where he was the first overall pick. Duncan played for four years at Wake Forest University where he averaged 16.5 points per game. In 1997, Duncan was voted Naismith College Player of the year. During his rookie year, Duncan didn't slow down by avera...   [read more]
