MIAMI (AP) - Some 23 years later, Cleveland State still has a knack for first-round shockers in the NCAA tournament.

The Vikings raced to an early 17-point lead Friday night and stunned one-time No. 1-ranked Wake Forest 84-69. The win was reminiscent of the Vikings' only other appearance in the tournament in 1986, when they upset Indiana in the opening round.

The latest result wasn't as big of a surprise as the win over Bob Knight. The Vikings (26-10) were seeded 14th then; they're 13th in the Midwest region this year. On Sunday, they'll play No. 12 Arizona.

No. 4 Wake Forest (24-7) lost in its first tournament game since 2005. Norris Cole scored 22 points for the Vikings, who committed only six turnovers to 18 for Wake Forest.
