Former Wake Forest University superstar and hometown hero Chris Paul is donating $2.5 million to support Wake Forest Basketball.
The Houston Rockets point guard’s latest donation to his alma mater – the largest ever by a former basketball student-athlete or any alumnus under the age of 35 – will ensure that future generations of Demon Deacons can succeed on and off the court.
Paul’s leadership gift demonstrates significant progress in fundraising efforts to transform the men’s and women’s basketball clubhouses with expanded and enhanced locker rooms, nutrition resources and treatment areas. The new Chris Paul Locker Room for the men’s team will be named in his honor.
