Is Wake Forest halfway home?

The media picked Wake Forest to finish 3rd this year in the ACC. Now, losing 40-32 at halftime against Florida State, the Demon Deacons might have just 20 more minutes left in their entire season. Wake Forest was the worst team in the ACC this year. Without Chris Paul, WFU will likely fall from a #2 seed in the NCAA tourney to watching the dance at home on their TV. The Deacons did not play very good defense last year, but that didn't matter because they scored so many points. This year, their poor defense is a glaring weakness. Florida State shot 54% from the field in the first half.

Here's the first half stat leaderss:

Wake Forest
Points - Michael Drum - 8 pts
Rebounds - Trent Strickland - 6 rbs
Assists - Justin Gray - 4 ast

Florida State
Points - Al Thornton - 11 pts
Rebounds - Al Thornton - 5 rbs
Assists - Todd Galloway - 2 ast
