Not to say that the highly rated freshmen aren't doing well; certainly, among
others, Brandon Wright is having a tremendous debut.

Smith and his teammates will get DePaul, coached by former Wake assistant

plays UKMC in the second ACC game of the night,
having lost two of their
three last games. Losing to UMKC would be a major shock, and don't expect
it. Quinton Day, a USC transfer, is their best player, and Gary Williams
