Wake Forest Stuns #1 Duke In Winston-Salem

By  | 

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - James Johnson's layup with 0.8
seconds remaining helped No. 6 Wake Forest beat No. 1 Duke 70-68 on
Wednesday night.

Johnson finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds and freshman
Al-Farouq Aminu scored 15 points for the Demon Deacons (17-1, 4-1
Atlantic Coast Conference).

They bounced back from last week's home loss that knocked them
from No. 1 by leading the Blue Devils for nearly the entire way - before letting a late 13-point lead slip away and recovering just in time to claim the fifth victory over a top-ranked team in school history.

Kyle Singler had 22 points and 12 rebounds for Duke (18-2, 5-1), which had its 10-game winning streak snapped.

Gerald Henderson added 20 points, and his jumper over Johnson with 10 seconds left tied it at 68, and capped the late 20-7 rally that got them back in the game.
