He was also the runner-up in ACC Player of the Year voting. He is the first Wake Forest player to be named the league's Most Improved Player in the four-year history of the award.

"I grew up in Greensboro and that's where the ACC Tournament was at most of the time, so I just go back to those days", Manning said.

Then, just when it seemed as though the Eagles were poised to score their first win since January 11 at N.C. State by battling back to tie the game at 53 with 15:04 remaining, Crawford took over to break the game open.

A loss to Boston College (9-22, 2-16 ACC), however, which enters postseason play on a 14-game losing streak and an RPI below 200, and Wake Forest could once again find itself in a definite state of limbo leading up to Selection Sunday on March 12.

The 10th-seeded Demon Deacons couldn't shake 15th-seeded Boston College until a dominant three-minute spurt early in the second half en route to a 92-78 victory in Tuesday's first round at the Barclays Center. He finished with seven points against Wake Forest.

His streak of 12 consecutive 20-point games was the longest in ACC play since NC State's T.J. Warren in 2014 and the longest by a Demon Deacon in over four decades.

Wake Forest: The Demon Deacons beat Virginia Tech 89-84 in Blacksburg, Virginia, on Saturday to finish the regular season.
