Open Letter From Ron Wellman To Deacon Fans

March 10, 2007

Dear Demon Deacon Fans:

In the last week, our men's basketball team had a great win on Senior Day against Virginia, followed by a thrilling double-overtime win over Georgia Tech that will be remembered as one of the great games in the history of the ACC Tournament. Although the magic was not extended for another night in Tampa, the season ended on a positive note.

This year's team was extremely young but has improved throughout the year and has shown real promise for the future. Our future is bright and I am convinced that we will contend for ACC Championships again very soon.

The one aspect of our program that has not waivered throughout the year, though, is our fan support. You have supported the team throughout the year even when you were undoubtedly frustrated at times with the results of our games. You never gave up on the team and the atmosphere at our game March 3rd vs. Virginia was incredibly good. THANK YOU for your consistent support throughout the season and for giving this young team your full support. I assure you that you made an impact upon everyone in the program with your intense support at every home game.

Once again, Demon Deacon fans stepped up in fine fashion. Whether we are winning an ACC Football Championship or fighting to stay out of the cellar in basketball, you are the BEST FANS in the ACC. The strength of your commitment is felt by our student-athletes and everyone associated with our program. I assure you that your support will be rewarded.

Go Deacs!

Ron Wellman
