No. 2 Miami knocked off by Wake Forest 80-65
WAKE FOREST 80, MIAMI FL 65

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Shane Larkin noticed during warm-ups
that something was off with No. 2 Miami. The go-go, uptempo
Hurricanes seemed a step slow, and not entirely ready to play.



They certainly paid for it.



Miami's unbeaten start to Atlantic Coast Conference play is
history. So is its 14-game winning streak and its highest-ever
national ranking, after the Hurricanes were knocked off by Wake
Forest 80-65 on Saturday.



"You could just see it tonight. I had a bad feeling coming into
warm-ups with everybody going slow," Larkin said. "I was trying
to get people to go fast, and I wasn't even going full speed
like I should have.



"Overall, we weren't prepared before the game and they came out
and punched us in the mouth."



Durand Scott had all 17 of his points in the second half for the
Hurricanes (22-4, 13-1), the last of the schools in the six BCS
conferences to get its first league loss.



Larkin added 13 points, Trey McKinney Jones had 11 and Kenny
Kadji finished with 10.



But Miami never got closer than 11 in the final 9 minutes and
was outrebounded 36-35 by the younger, smaller Demon Deacons as
the best start to ACC play since Duke's 16-0 mark in 1998-99
came to a surprisingly lopsided end.



"You want to go undefeated, you want to win every game, but
you're still in first place," Larkin said. "That's in the past
and we're just going to let it stay in the past."



The Hurricanes - whose previous three wins came by a combined 12
points - looked like they had another tight finish in them when
Scott capped an 18-8 run with a jumper with 14 1/2 minutes left
to make it 46-41.



He added a layup 2 minutes later to pull Miami to 50-45, and it
looked as if the Hurricanes were going to find a way to keep
their charmed run rolling.



But two possessions later, C.J. Harris turned a turnover into a
fast-break dunk that started a 12-0 run that put the Demon
Deacons on the fast track to their biggest victory since they
knocked off then-No. 1 Duke four years ago when they were in the
top five themselves.



"There's been some tough times, so staying with it, fighting
through adversity, finally coming on top of a big-time win is
amazing," Harris said.



Harris finished with 23 points and hit all five of his
3-pointers while freshman Codi Miler-McIntyre added 15 points
for the Demon Deacons (12-14, 5-9).



They shot 54 percent, led by double figures for the entire
second half and reeled off 12 straight points to pull away for
their biggest victory under third-year coach Jeff Bzdelik.



As the final seconds ticked away, Harris and Travis McKie - two
of the team's three available non-freshmen on scholarship -
exchanged a flying chest-bump before the Wake Forest students
rushed the court for the second time in little over a month.



An 86-84 upset of then-No. 18 North Carolina State on Jan. 22
was its biggest victory under Bzdelik.



This one topped it, by far.



"Who would have ever thought Wake Forest beating Miami at home
would have been a court-rushing scene?" Larkin said.



McKie finished with 10 rebounds and five blocked shots and Devin
Thomas scored 10 points for the Demon Deacons, who - after two
years of being one of the ACC's worst teams - have transformed
themselves into a tough out at home in the conference.



They improved to 5-2 against ACC foes at Joel Coliseum. The
losses - to Duke and Georgia Tech - are by a combined six
points.



"It shows hope, and if everybody has faith in us and the energy
stays the way it does every game - at home, at least - that just
shows a big future for Wake Forest basketball and the entire
program, period," Miller-McIntyre said. "I know it hasn't been
so well in the past few years, but we're all trying to put that
behind us."



They thoroughly outplayed the Hurricanes from start to finish,
hitting shots from all over the court against a Miami team that
at times appeared fatigued after gutting out those three tight
wins but wouldn't let that excuse fly.



"Wake Forest won this game," said Miami big man Reggie Johnson,
a Winston-Salem native. "We had mental lapses on the defensive
and offensive end. ... I don't want to take anything away from
Wake Forest."



Harris hit three 3-pointers during a 2-minute stretch of a 28-8
run that put Wake Forest up 19 on the Hurricanes - who until
then hadn't trailed by more than 13 at any point in an ACC game
during their run.



Arnaud William Adala Moto's fast-break layup with just over a
minute before the break put the Demon Deacons up 42-23.



"Every player in the first half for them was very sharp. They
were well rested," Miami coach Jim Larranaga said. "They had a
whole week to prepare for us. They defended us well and we were
just not as sharp as we need to be."
