Four games into the season, there’s obviously no need for Wake Forest’s basketball team to wait on issues to be ironed out through more hard lessons.

“Time is of the essence. You say you have so much time, but you really don’t,” sophomore forward Isaiah Mucius said Wednesday. “At the same time, it’s four games, but … I think we have a level of urgency right now that we’re pushing ourselves to get better.

“It’s not like, ‘OK, we have time.’ Yo, we’ve gotta make fixes fast, and I think the coaches are doing a great job emphasizing that and I think we’re doing a great job taking in the information, and we have to apply it when it comes to game time.”
