Wake Forest 60
New Orleans, La. (NCAA Tournament)
*****Wake Forest saw Al-Farouq Aminu get his 3rd personal foul early in the first half and with Aminu stuck on the bench, Wake was gone and the rout was on. Aminu still finished with 16 points and 8 boards and just think what might have happened if he had been able to play the entire game…..*****
