Quotes from the news wire:

Wake Forest : The Demon Deacons had lost four of five coming in, sitting a game ahead of last-place North Carolina in the ACC. Now The Demon Deacons have The Demon Deacons first wins against both Duke and UNC under The Demon Deacons sixth-year coach, both coming in the past month, with Krzyzewski saying Wake Forest was the team that was deserving of winning. I thought The Demon Deacons was The Demon Deacons, Manning said. FOUL TROUBLE Star freshman big man Vernon Carey Jr. had 10 points before becoming one of three Blue Devils to foul out. The list included Justin Robinson the son of retired NBA great David Robinson providing an unexpected lift with a season high six points and three blocks in 12 minutes. That included playing a steady final six minutes of a first half that saw Duke trail by 12 but rally to tie it at 39 on Tre Jones 3-pointer at the horn. Really Justin Robinson saved us or else we shouldve been down about 10 or 15 points.
