Travis McKie added 19 points in his final scheduled home game for the Demon Deacons (16-14, 6-11 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Coming off a home loss to sub-.500 Boston College, they shot 46 percent from the field and overcame their largest deficit of the game by scoring 17 straight points and holding Duke without a field goal for 5 critical minutes down the stretch.

Codi Miller-McIntyre had 13 points to help Wake Forest claim its first win over Duke since 2009 and its biggest win since an upset of No. 2 Miami last February.

Jabari Parker scored 19 points and Rodney Hood added 16 for the Blue Devils (23-7, 12-5).

Playing their first game in over a week, they missed six straight shots down the stretch and were just 6 of 27 from 3-point range while falling to 4-5 in ACC road games.

No. 3 ARIZONA 74, OREGON STATE 69

CORVALLIS, Ore. • Nick Johnson scored 25 points and Arizona beat Oregon State in a back-and-forth game that wasn’t decided until the final minutes.

Kaleb Tarczewski added 12 points and nine rebounds for the Wildcats (28-2, 15-2 Pac-12), who had already clinched the regular season conference title.

Roberto Nelson scored 25 points and Devon Collier had 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Beavers (15-14, 7-10).

Arizona built several leads during the game but couldn’t pull far away from a feisty Oregon State team.

Arizona opened the game on a 7-0 run before Oregon State responded and took a 10-9 lead on a steal and layup by Hallice Cooke at the 14:13 mark.

The Wildcats gradually crept away, and an alley-oop pass from T.J. McConnell to Johnson for a dunk that put the Wildcats up 31-22 with 3:53 left in the half, their largest lead of the game. Arizona led 36-33 at halftime.

No. 8 KANSAS 82, TEXAS TECH 57

LAWRENCE, Kan. • Tarik Black scored 19 points on perfect shooting in his final game at Allen Fieldhouse, and No. 8 Kansas managed just fine without injured center Joel Embiid in a romp over Texas Tech.

Black, a senior transfer from Memphis, finished 9 of 9 from the field, matching the school record for field goal attempts without a miss held by C.J. Giles (2005) and Mark Randall (1990).
