Worst game I've seen us play in several years at Duke.
There are 100 teams whose best game could beat the best 3 teams' worst.
I know that seems like a back-handed compliment to Wake, but I don't mean it to be. They were simply tremendous tonight, the lackluster Duke effort notwithstanding.
Duke was up 60-55 and Wake Forest finishes the game on a 31-13 run. My hats off to the Deacons on playing an excellent game.

Out hustled... out played. One of those nights.
If we were going to lose a game between now and the ACC Tournament, this would probably be the best one to lose.
It's not that big of a deal in the long run so let's avoid the meltdown. Wake is VERY VERY good at home, they're an up-and-coming team and we played horribly, it's not like we actually played well and got beat.
I feel confident that we could be looking back at this game at some point and see it as a turning point.
I'd like to blame the loss on the refs, but we really played below our level tonight. Wake played well and we just couldn't put in the effort. Well, let's hope that Wake makes it in the NCAA thanks to this at least and can carry the momentum to win their next game. Hopefully we can rebound as well.
Some nights, you just get beat. Ech.
Duke played sloppy today. Brought their "C" game.
Is it just me... or am I the only one who wishes that Scheyer played less minutes. I mean he's gritty and plays tough, but he can't buy a bucket. Plus he's a defensive liability. He needs to be able to knock down the open 3 point shot.
Duke looked tired and unfocused. Hopefully this loss can be used as motivation.
Remember we are still in first place in the ACC even though the hated Holes are having A LOT of fun in Chapel Hell right now at our expense.
I don't know about any of you guys, but I'm still putting on my DUKE sweatshirt when I head out tomorrow, to the gym or otherwise. We'll be fine and we'll learn from this game.
Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.
You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner
You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke
You could see this train wreck early. Nelson 3-9 from the foul line, Singler 3 or 4 turnovers in the first few minutes. And if Henderson can't shoot, why is he playing. Scheyer had clearly his worst game of the season. Only Smith showed me anything tonight. Let's hope they got this out of their system.
Wow. That was absolutley pathetic. No Hustle, no effort, no desire, no emotion. The NBA All-Stars put more effort into their game than this Duke team did. You can't have much of a chance when 5 starters foul out, but it was just ugly.
Wake played great basketball all night.
