Wake Forest Demon Deacons v West Virginia Mountaineers
CLEVELAND - MARCH 19: Chris Paul #3 of the Wake Forest Demon Deacons chases a loose ball ahead of Darris Nichols #14 of the West Virginia Mountaineers during the second round of the 2005 NCAA Championship on March 19, 2005 at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

Whatever else you might say about Chris Paul, he’s true to his hometown and school: Paul has donated $2.5 million to Wake Forest. The money is earmarked for a men and women’s clubhouse and a renovated locker room and put Wake Forest halfway to completing the project.

That’s pretty generous of Paul and as A.D. Ron Wellman says, facilities do make a difference. Too bad he can’t still suit up. That might make a difference too.
