Turnover-prone Wake falls to No. 11 Duke 83-63
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Wake Forest didn’t have its leading scorer against No. 11 Duke. Once the Demon Deacons started giving the ball to the Blue Devils, they didn’t have much of a chance.
Wake Forest had 19 turnovers, including five straight during the run that led to an 83-63 loss to Duke on Tuesday night.
“It was an uphill climb from then on,” coach Jeff Bzdelik said. “It just shows you how important each and every possession still is. … That’s a big difference, obviously, especially in a place like this.”
Duke scored 26 points off all those Wake Forest giveaways.
Miller-McIntyre, who averages 14.4 points, was in uniform on the bench but was unable to play after spraining his ankle three days earlier against Georgia Tech.
Bzdelik said the team’s medical staff told him Tuesday morning that, “‘Hey, we’re not going to do this.’”
“It’s too tender, and he would not have been effective,” Bzdelik said. “We didn’t want a setback, obviously, with a lot of basketball left to be played.”
Playing their first game since their thrill-a-minute, 81-79 overtime loss to eventual No. 1 Syracuse, they showed no signs of sluggishness.
“We beat the emotional hangover,” coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
And the Demon Deacons, too.
Duke shot nearly 51 percent, hit 12 3-pointers against one of the ACC’s best perimeter defenses and used a big run at the end of the first half to roll to its eighth straight victory over its instate rival.
