When Jeff Bzdelik resigned towards the end of March, it was unclear whether his Wake Forest squad would return to the ACC school when athletic director Ron Wellman hired a new coach. Now that Danny Manning has been brought from Tulsa to Winston-Salem, questions have been raised if certain Demon Deacons, like sophomore guard Codi Miller-McIntyre, would indeed be back.
Bret Strelow of the Fayetteville Observer spoke with Miller-McIntyre and asked if he would play under Manning, and the guard confirmed he wasn’t going anywhere, telling Strelow that he couldn’t see any particular reason why he would transfer from Wake Forest.
The 6-foot-3 guard had one of the more underrated sophomore seasons; he significantly increased his assist rate, cut down on his turnovers — 15 percent turnover rate! — and worked hard to attack the basket in the halfcourt, spurning low percentage shots when drawing a foul and getting to the free throw line would prove more advantageous (the guard attempted nearly 100 more free throws than his freshman year). Now under the tutelage of Manning, Miller-McIntyre could be on the cusp of a potential breakout season.
