#9 Duke was hoping to rebound from some recent losses against a very tough #8 Wake Forest team.  Wake Forest beat Duke earlier this season, but they have never swept Duke in the regular season.   Duke was ahead by a whopping 22 POINTS, and they blew the lead.  Blew it!  However, thanks to Duke’s Gerald Henderson, who had a career-high 35 points, Duke held on to win the game.  Now, Wake Forest, who started the season super hot, are 4-5 in their last nine games.  They could be upset bait come March.  Duke 101, Wake Forest 91.


The Miami Heat’s Dwayne Wade, had a monster game against the Orlando Magic last night.  He scored; count ’em, 50 points!  Normally, when a player scores that many, his team wins.  But, unfortunately for the Heat, the Magic were just too strong, and   easily cooled the heat.  The Magic’s Dwight Howard had a fantastic game himself with 32 points and rebounds.  And Orlando’s new point guard, Rafer Alston, had a nice game as well with 12 points and 9 assists.  The Magic will be tough to beat this post season, while Miami is just hoping to make the playoffs.  Orlando 122, Miami 99.

Elsewhere in the NBA, an offensive showdown between the Phoenix Suns and the Boston Celtics.  The Suns have been playing extraordinary since ditching head coach Terry Porter.  But unfortunately, they lost their star Power Forward Amare Stoudamire for the season.  Now, with the defending champs in town, they would need to buckle down.  They did their best, and had five players scoring double-digits, but the Celts were just too much.  Rajon Rondo did most of the damage with 32 points, and Ray Allen was right behind him with 31.   It’s as if the Celtics didn’t miss the injured Kevin Garnett one iota.  Boston 128, Phoenix 108.


Finally, some interesting news out of the NFL.  It appears that the Colts star wide receiver, Marvin Harrison, might be asking for a release.  “Star” is used liberally, as Harrison is getting up there in age, and the Colts have favored Reggie Wayne more, but Harrison was definitely a key part of the Colts heyday (that is, if they’re not still in their heyday.  Peyton did win MVP).  But, lately, Harrison hasn’t been their go-to-guy, and he probably thinks he’s got some good years left in him.  Whichever team gets him might see a resurgence, similar to when Jerry Rice went to the Oakland Raiders.  We shall see.
