No. 5 Wake Forest at No. 7 Duke, 6:30 p.m. tomorrow

After four losses in its past seven games, Duke needs to catch a second wind. Wake Forest (22-3, 10-2 ACC) beat the Blue Devils, 92-89, in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Feb. 2, and leads North Carolina (21-3, 9-2) by a half-game in the conference standings. The Tar Heels play at Clemson today, and then have road games at North Carolina State and Maryland, before hosting Duke in the March 6 regular season finale. Wake Forest seems to have an easier road in its three remaining ACC games after Duke: The Demon Deacons host Virginia and Georgia Tech, and then play at N.C. State in their finale. Duke (18-4, 8-4) still plays at Georgia Tech and hosts Miami before closing against the Tar Heels. The Blue Devils, whose three best players are averaging more than 33 minutes apiece, seem to be wearing down.
