Sunday night, # 4 Wake Forest defeated # 3 North Carolina 92-89 (more here) in Winston-Salem, NC. It was the second losing effort of the week for visiting North Carolina -- the Tar Heels had been undefeated ranked #1 in the nation before being upset by #17 Boston College last Sunday (Boston College celebrated their win over North Carolina by going on to lose to lose to both Harvard -- yes, Harvard! -- and Miami).
Jeff Teague scored a career high 34 points to lead Wake Forest. Danny Green led North Carolina with 22 points. North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough, the reigning National Player of the Year in men's college basketball, finished with 17 points, but was held to only 4 points in the second half.
North Carolina fell to 14-2, and 0-2 in the ACC.
