In his sophomore season he became the first Wake Forest All-American since Chris Paul in 2004-2005 and the 13th in school history. He was selected as a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, the John Wooden Award and the Oscar Robertson Trophy. Mid-way though the season Teague was chosen for the Naismith Trophy. He led Wake in scoring with 18.8 points, assists with 110, steals with 58 and three-point percentage at 48.5%. He scored his 1,000th point with the Demon Deacons and became the 45th player in the history of the school to join the club.[2][3] He scored a career-high 34 points on January 11, 2009 in a 92–89 victory over North Carolina.

On April 8, 2009, Teague announced that he planned to forgo his final two seasons at Wake Forest University and make himself available for the NBA draft.
