The 2007–08 Wake Forest Demon Deacons men's basketball team is a NCAA Division I college basketball team who competed in the Atlantic Coast Conference. This was the first season under new head coach Dino Gaudio, who replaced former coach Skip Prosser, who died in the off-season. The Deacons lost leading scorer from 2006–07 Kyle Visser, but brought in a good recruiting class (ranked 28th nationally by Scout.com),[1] including guards Jeff Teague and Gary Clark, and forward James Johnson.
