SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Wake Forest coach Danny Manning was surprised by a few things in his team's 75-68 victory at Notre Dame, but one of them wasn't the comeback made by his junior guard Brandon Childress.
After going 0-for-12 from the floor, including 0-of-8 from beyond the 3-point line, in Saturday's 95-57 loss at home to North Carolina, Childress scored 20 points in what Manning called his best performance of the season for the Demon Deacons (10-15, 3-10 Atlantic Coast Conference).
"I thought Brandon played his best game for us tonight," Manning said while ticking off Childress' line in 39 minutes - 20 points on 5-of-7 shooting, all from long distance, seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and no turnovers. "It was a huge bounce-back game for him coming off the last game we played."
