TOBACCO ROAD BUMP
Wake Forest guard Ishmael Smith (10) lost the ball out-of-bounds on Sunday night in Durham, N.C., one of his five turnovers in a 101--91 loss to Duke. Freshman guard Elliot Williams (20), a surprise starter, had a career-high-equaling 11 points for the Blue Devils, who rebounded from two straight ACC losses to pull into a three-way tie for second in the conference.
