Top ranked Duke falls to Wake Forest

In a ACC clash, Wake Forest defeated the #1 ranked Duke Blue Devils on Wednesday night 70-68, handing the Blue Devils their first conference loss of the season.

Demon Deacons forward James Johnson, scored the game-winning shot with 0.8 left on the clock. Despite, a strong showing from Henderson and Singler, the tandem combined for 42 points, Duke shot a season-low 33 percent from the field and 4-22 from 3pt. range.

Duke becomes the fourth top ranked team to lose in the month of January. North Carolina, Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest preceded them as fallen number ones. Who will be #1 next week?
Probably UConn, assuming the Huskies win their Saturday home game against Providence. Who ever gets that top spot, my hat goes off to you. Not only for earning it, but for the loss that will surely follow.
