Wake Forest: On to Chapel Hill

Tough game for the Deacs last night.  The score definitely did not indicate the fight, but Wake just let it get away in the last ten minutes after tying it up with about 14 minutes left.

Anyway, Carolina remains ranked after a couple more losses (big surprise) and will host our Deacs on Wednesday.  Should be a close battle if Wake plays like they did against Duke. 

Onto the links...

Secily Ray scored 16 points and Brittany Waters added 14 to lead Wake Forest to a 67-64 win over No. 25 Miami on Sunday. Wake (11-7, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) ended a two-game slide, collecting its first win over a ranked team since a 53-46 win over then-No. 10 Texas A&M on Nov. 23, 2007.

"When teams try to play us physical this year, we're going to fight back," Nolan Smith said. "In years past, teams have called us soft and tried to really attack us inside. This year, we've got guys who will fight, hit back, push back, whatever they've got to do. And eventually that wears the other teams down."

"Coming into the game we're focused on the big three," L.D. Williams said of Jon Scheyer, Singler and Nolan Smith. "When some of those other guys flying under the radar have a big game like that, it's tough."

"It doesn't really feel like a 20-point loss," Smith said. "Looking from the outside, maybe a five-point loss, a 10-point loss at most. But a loss is a loss. We've got to learn from this and move on."

"I thought we played sensational basketball for the rest of the game," Krzyzewski said. "The last five minutes were kind of flawless the way our guys were executing. "It was ACC basketball at its toughest and best. It’s the hardest game we’ve played this year."

Also, the team from Washington. D. C., which came into the classic with a 14-5 record, held the potent John Marshall offense, and namely senior Travis McKie, in check. The Wake Forest bound phenom was only 1 for 6 in the first half from the floor but did hit 5 of 6 free throws to finish with eights points. But McKie's shooting and his teammates shooting was due in part to the swarming defense of Kima, which held John Marshal to 23 percent from the floor. McKie did regroup in the second half to finish with a game-high 25 points and a game-high 17 rebounds. Willie Mangum joined his JM teammate in double figures with 15 points.

Wake, led by McFarland, is playing a brand of basketball that is going to get somebody seriously injured. If Dino Gaudio cares at all about his reputation and that of his team, he’ll rein in the excessive nastiness, starting with McFarland. And if he can’t, the officials should send a message loud and clear that "chippiness" will not be allowed. As we have learned from our friend the Playcaller, there’s a lot more to officiating than meets the eye.

Team to watch: At 12-6, North Carolina is facing the realistic possibility of slipping from the NCAA Tournament chase. The Heels have home wins against Michigan State and Virginia Tech and beat Ohio State on a neutral court, but have lost to every other quality opponent. That's why a victory at home Wednesday against Wake Forest is essential. It will be followed by a period of only three games in 15 days, so there'll be time to work on the team's tendency to commit unforced turnovers.
