Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski will miss Wake Forest game because of virus

Effort is always a key, and several times freshman phenomenon Marvin Bagley III outworked a couple of Deacons under the basket in his 30-point, 11-rebound performance. Knocking down another 3-pointer and a free throw for good measure-though the 92.7 percent free throw shooter only split the pair at the line-Trent headed into the locker room at halftime showing no signs of being slowed down.

With just 10 minutes left to play in the first half, the Blue Devils found their lead slipping thanks to aggressive plays from junior guard Bryant Crawford and the Demon Deacons.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski missed Saturday's 89-71 victory over Wake Forest because of a virus.

This marks the third straight season in which Krzyzewski — who turns 71 on February 13 — has missed at least one game because of his health.

"To have somebody like that on your team, who's throwing up on the bench on the side, not feeling too good, to have somebody like that come out and still play the way he did and give everything he had, that's just unbelievable", Bagley said.

"He's incredible, he has an insane motor", he said.

Six Duke players scored in double figures against the Panthers. "When we're making shots, you have to go out there and guard them".

That was when Wake Forest turned a double-digit hole into a four-point lead against North Carolina before stumbling in the final minutes.

Wake Forest (8-8, 1-3) has lost consecutive games to Boston College and Virginia Tech, and despite some improved rebounding during ACC play, the Demon Deacons haven't developed consistency.

Offensively, Duke averages 93.5 points, 44.1 rebounds and 20.1 assists per game. Finishing with a stellar 6-of-8 performance from the field-including 6-of-7 from beyond the arc-the Duke freshman put together arguably his most consistently unsafe showing in conference play to date. He finished with 13, hitting two of his four shots from deep.

"Anytime we make shots from the perimiet it's big for us, because we have two guys inside that are really good, very efficient and can get a whole team in foul trouble", said Capel, who has now won a game as Duke's acting head coach three years in a row.

He has followed that with 27 points and 11 points when Wake Forest has visited - with the latter of those matchups resulting in Allen's career-high six steals. "We had some other guys that made a few more shots and made a few more plays, and that's sort of the direction that I chose to go".

Gary Trent Jr. scored 19 points, finishing only behind Bagley III.

The offense clicked for much of the game, but the lasting impression for Capel was the defense, which held the Demon Deacons to just 36 percent shooting for the game. Overall, the Blue Devils have won the last six meetings in the series.

"As of right now, nobody, I don't think", Trent said.

"I'm ready to step up whenever they need me", O'Connell said.
