Put your post-game thoughts here.
Andre Dawkins: “People ask me if I can still shoot, and I ask them if they can still breathe. That’s kind of the same thing.”
Great game by miles and Kelly. I thought K made some mistakes tonight with his lineup at times.
We were sloppy down the stretch but the guys hung on to finish 8-0 in ACC road games. That is an awesome accomplishment. Congratulations to the players!!!

Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."
Wake Forest is bad. Ryan, Miles and Seth were good tonight. Mason bounced back with a solid game. Andre played his worst game of the year by far. Hope he brings his 3 pt stroke and brain to Cameron on Saturday. Wish we would not have set the cruise control on 8mph for the last 10 minutes. That was sickening to watch. Got the win, all that matters at this point. Focus on Saturday
Amazing what this team has accomplished with all of the perceived faults and weaknesses it has. They've been alot of fun to watch and taken us for a heck of a ride.
And yes it looks like Tony swung at Mason in that video. Frustration I'd guess, but still no excuse.
good enough to win. not sure that's a good thing.
Miles continues to rebound at an awesome rate. And Mason is way above 50% FTs for the year!!! Another disappearing act from Dawkins, but very solid contributions from everybody else.
Did I miss something? Andre barely saw the court in the second half, even when the personnel on the court were generating no offense and letting Wake go on a huge run. Granted, Andre did not do anything outstanding when he was in the game, but I didn't see him make major mistakes, either. He seems to be back on Coach K's quick hook. Given it was only 2 games ago he scored 22 points and was crucial in the FSU game (before riding the pine in much of the second half of that one, as well), what has he done to see his role so diminished?
How we got the W left quite a few things to be desired. But we go the W and that's the important thing. 8-0 on the road in the ACC with this crew is quite an accomplishment. Though it is essentially meaningless, if K doesn't get ACC coach of the year for this team's accomplishments then it will be a real head-scratcher.
I thought we were very fortunate on the block call that gave Mason an and-1 in those closing minutes to end Wake's spurt. I totally thought he charged in that one, and if the charge was called we could very well be looking at a different result.
Our offense was really bad those final 10 minutes. We seemed mentally checked out of the game. Nobody valued the ball, I think we had 3 or 4 straight possessions with turnovers. The defense was ok overall, on some sequences we looked impressive, on others we looked same 'ol - same 'ol for this season.
Our big guys got excellent looks underneath but once again, Mason specifically, had trouble finishing around the basket. This again creates the illusion that we rely on the perimeter too heavily. It almost looks like Mason's hurt because it doesn't even appear to be getting any lift. Whatever it is, it needs to be gone by Saturday.
Curry looked great tonight, especially driving the ball. Kelly was terrific on offense, I love those curls on the elbow. Miles' defense was terrific. If we advance deep in March, it's probably going to be because of him.
"Just be you. You is Enough."
Congrats to the team for going undefeated on the road in the ACC!
Congrats to Mason for 8-9 from the free throw line!
Congrats to Ryan!!!
I was probably most impressed with Kelly taking the ball inside. We need more of that.
Good game for Seth, Miles and Ryan. I love Miles' intensity. He got two big rebounds late in the game. Seth got us going with 3 big 3s and Ryan led us in scoring. Some things for Coach K to get upset with so the guys do get complacent. GoDuke!
I wouldn't make much of the Wake comeback, they hit shots that they normally don't hit. Besides the bone head Kelly shot after Miles got the offensive rebound, I felt like we still played smart and well. I'm not going to argue with 8-0 on the road in the ACC having had to go to UNC, MD, Clemson, Va Tech, FSU, Ga Tech....Not bad at all. there aren't many teams in any conference that could pull this off.
