Ho hum, Wake beats Duke at home

Wake Forest 92 Duke 89

Chris Paul steps back up, Daniel Ewing gets into fould trouble, J.J. Redick almost brings Duke back single-handedly, Deacs fans don't rush the court......

WSJ coverage:

"Ultimately the Blue Devils never could overcome the foul trouble that saddled Daniel Ewing nor the control that point guard Chris Paul exerted over the game."

Lenox Rawlings:

"Wake had more elements and more avenues and, for certain stretches, a respectable defense. That's the volatile variable in the Deacons' NCAA title bid."

John Dell, writing about Ewing:

"It doesn't happen too often, but when an important spoke is broken, it makes things difficult."

Herald-Sun coverage

Ewing on the first-half scrum that resulted in technicals for him and Paul, with a third personal for Ewing:

"It was just two competitive players fighting over the ball. If anything, I don't think there should have been a technical foul called on anyone because you couldn't see anything on the bottom."

P.S.- K's not going to coach the Lakers.

Frank Dascenzo: The Devils and the Deacs do it all over again in a mere 18 days.
