DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA - FEBRUARY 22: Head coach Mike Krzyzewski of the Duke Blue Devils directs his team during the second half of their game against the Virginia Tech Hokies at Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 22, 2020 in Durham, North Carolina.

Duke Upset By Unranked Wake Forest In Double Overtime 113-101 [VIDEO]

The No. 4 ranked Duke Blue Devils lost in dramatic fashion to the unranked Wake Forest Demon Deacons in double ovetime on Tuesday night 113-101, tying the most points ever allowed by a Mike Krzyewski coached team. Coming into the game, Duke was an 11-point favorite, according to Caesar’s Sportsbook.

A visibly frustrated Krzyzewski spoke to the media after the game. “I’m disappointed in our group,” Krzyzewski told ESPN. “I didn’t think we came the way we should and the way we’ve practiced. We show our youth so much…. This is our 28th game. You’d hope that we’d be older by now, but we were not tonight.”

The Demon Deacons became the first team to score over 100 points against Duke since Maryland accomplished it in the 1989-90 season. “The second overtime, they just took over,” Krzyzewski said. “Obviously, the total game, they were the team that was deserving of winning, and they did.”

Senior Brandon Childress was the hero for Wake Forest. After missing his first ten shots of the game, Childress nailed a three with 15.5 seconds left to tie the game at 79-79, forcing the game to overtime. He followed that up with another three pointer to start the first overtime and went on to score 13 points combined in both overtime periods. In total, Childress finished with 17 points, five rebounds and five assists.

When asked about his slow start, Childress responded, “I don’t care about percentages. I’m satisfied with the shots I take. I practice those. It might not have went as much as I’d like to. But I just wanted to find the right moment to take over the game, and I did that.”

At the final buzzer, Wake Forest fans bolted onto the court to celebrate their first win over Duke since 2014. Childress was hoisted up on his teammates’ shoulders and was very emotional in his post game press conference. “I was ready when my number was called,” Childress said. “I was 0-for-10 at first, but I stayed with it, and I hit shots when it mattered and we won the game.”

Wake Forest entered the game 11-15 and had lost four of their previous five games, but you could tell they were the hungrier team. Olivier Sarr had a career-high 25 points and the team shot 52% from the field and made 37 of 50 free throws.

Duke had three players foul out late in the fourth quarter including freshman sensation Vernon Carey Jr. who finished with 10 points and seven rebounds. Other contributors included freshman Wendell Moore Jr. who scored a season-high 25 points and Tre Jones finished with 24 points, seven rebounds and nine assists. This is the second game in a week where Duke has lost to an unranked opponent on the road. On February 19, they lost to NC State by 22 points. Not a good sign with the NCAA tournament just around the corner.
