Wake Forest Pittsburgh Mens Basketball

Wake Forest guard Brandon Childress said the Deacons “didn’t come out with any fire” in Wednesday’s season opener against Boston College.

Deep in the heart of New England Patriots territory, Wake Forest’s Brandon Childress channeled Bill Belichick.

“On to the next one, on to the next one,” Childress said Wednesday outside the visitors locker room of Conte Forum, shortly after Wake Forest’s season-opening loss against Boston College.

The Deacons’ opener was disappointing for a slew of reasons, and roughly 30 minutes after the game, their senior point guard was ready to move forward.

“Put this one in a bag, can’t dwell on it.
