2011 ACC Tournament winner
As of March 27, 2011[1]; Rankings from AP Poll[2]

The 2010–11 Wake Forest Demon Deacons men's basketball team represented Wake Forest University in the 2010–11 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. The team's head coach was Jeff Bzdelik, who was hired after the firing of Dino Gaudio, and two consecutive seasons of NCAA tournament appearances. When Dino Gaudio was let go the week prior, athletic director Ron Wellman cited poor post season performance as the basis for that decision. Athletic Director Ron Wellman then proceeded to hire his longtime friend Jeff Bzdelik, as head coach even though he had a history of little to no postseason experiences. The team played its home games at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and was a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. They finished the season 8–24, 1–15 in ACC play and lost in the first round of the ACC Tournament to Boston College.

Previous season[edit]

They finished the 2009–10 season 20–11, 9–7 in ACC play and lost in the first round of the 2010 ACC Men's Basketball Tournament. They received an at–large bid to the 2010 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, earning a 9 seed in the East Region. They defeated No. 8 seed Texas in overtime in the first round before losing to No. 1 seed and AP No. 2 Kentucky in the second round.
