Randolph Childress didn't look like himself on the court and he didn't sound like himself after the game because of a bad cold. Wake Forest will continue playing in the NCAA tournament, however, because Tim Duncan was definitely himself. He was the only big man on the court, and did everything necessary to help the top-seeded Demon Deacons escape with a 64-59 second-round victory over ninth-seeded St. Louis on Saturday in an East Regional second-round game.

That was some Sunday for North Carolina. The Tar Heels managed to lose star center Rasheed Wallace to an ankle sprain and the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament final, 82-80, to Wake Forest. They also lost the No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament's East Regional to the Demon Deacons, who got 37 points, an ACC tournament record 107 overall, from guard Randolph Childress, playing with a dislocated pinky on his shooting hand.

It isn't every day in college recruiting that a coach lands a future NBA lottery pick because a hurricane blew through the U.S. Virgin Islands. What's more, had this hurricane tormented some other helpless atoll, that coach's ticket to the Final Four might have been leading the break on the university swim team instead of finishing it with two-handed jams against Duke.

Tim Duncan wasn't himself Sunday. But the Wake Forest star steered the Demon Deacons to a 65-62 victory over Texas in a second-round NCAA Midwest Regional game. "It was very tough because I didn't have all the wind that I usually have and all the stamina that I usually have." said Duncan, who had lost 10 pounds in four days because of a stomach virus. "There were stretches where I just wanted to sit down for a little while and stop.

Clemson backup safety Kantrell Brown sprained his neck against Wake Forest but is expected to make a full recovery. Brown, a sophomore, lay motionless, face first, on the Clemson field Saturday afternoon after a kickoff return by the Demon Deacons. He was taken off the field on a stretcher with his neck in a brace, although he was moving his legs, arms and hands before he left the field. The school said Brown was taken to Oconee Memorial Hospital in South Carolina where tests were negative for anything more serious.

Wake Forest Coach Jim Grobe had tried all week to keep everyone calm as the Demon Deacons prepared to play one of the biggest games in school history. But as students tried to tear down the goal posts and his players hooted and hollered in the locker room, Grobe finally loosened up. "It's time to dream a little bit," Grobe said. Kevin Marion had an 81-yard touchdown run and Patrick Ghee intercepted a pass in the end zone with under a minute left Saturday night as No. 22 Wake Forest held off No.

Wake up, Wake Forest! Five games into the college football season, you're not supposed to be the last remaining unbeaten team in the Atlantic Coast Conference. That's never happened before, at any point in any season. You've taken advantage of a cupcake schedule, sure, but you're one victory away from only the second 6-0 start in school history and the first since 1944, when a team coached by D.C. "Peahead" Walker won its first seven games.

For his last game at Wake Forest, James MacPherson was grateful that the game plan called for a bit more passing than usual. MacPherson completed nine of 16 passes for a season-high 241 yards and two touchdowns, and the normally grounded Demon Deacons defeated Oregon, 38-17, Monday in the Seattle Bowl. "Going into the game, I knew there were going to be opportunities to throw a couple of deep passes on them, and maybe score a few touchdowns," the senior said. "Luckily, we were able to do that."

The fans didn't storm the court and Wake Forest's players didn't go wild in celebration. Suddenly, beating Duke has become routine.

Chris Paul wanted to win, and he got a reminder on just how to make that happen from Wake Forest Coach Skip Prosser. "Coach always tells us this is a team game played by individuals," Paul said. "He says you have to beat your guy." Paul dominated his point guard matchup with Raymond Felton, Taron Downey had a season-high 18 points and the fourth-ranked Demon Deacons ran away from No. 3 North Carolina, 95-82, on Saturday.
