Restoring Dignity

Wake Forest announced today that guard Chris Paul will not play in the team's first game of the ACC tournament. His punishment is the direct result of a punch to Julius Hodge's groin last night in a game against NC State.

I applaud Wake Forest athletic director Ron Welmann and men's basketball coach Skip Prosser for sitting Paul in an important game. I also give credit to Chris Paul for his statement of apology and acceptance of his punishment.

I hope that all involved will move past last night's ugly incident and get on to what promises to be an outstanding ACC tournament.
