Plumlee leads No. 5 Duke past Wake Forest 75-70

  • Text size: + -

WINSTON-SALEM -- Mason Plumlee scored a career-high 32 points and No. 5 Duke held off Wake Forest 75-70 on Wednesday night.

Seth Curry added 21 points, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer in the final minutes for the Blue Devils (18-2, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They shot nearly 52 percent -- despite going just 2-for-14 from 3-point range -- and got a huge night from their senior big man to earn their first road victory of the season.

Freshman Devin Thomas had 15 points for the Demon Deacons (10-10, 3-5), who were denied their second upset of a nationally ranked state rival in eight nights.

C.J. Harris and Travis McKie added 14 points each for Wake Forest, which led 66-65 on Tyler Cavanaugh's three-point play with 4:02 left.
