The No. 4 ranked Duke Blue Devils survived a serious scare at home against a not great Wake Forest team Tuesday night, winning 71-70.
And by survived, we really mean it, as Wake Forest’s buzzer-beater attempt somehow touched just about every part of the rim but didn’t fall through the hoop.
Duke was playing without star Zion Williamson again and they looked mediocre at best for most of the game. Then after a costly/bad turnover gave Wake Forest the ball down one with seven seconds left, Chaundee Brown’s putback attempt somehow didn’t go down.
First we’ll show you the view from the broadcast, then one from the floor:
Wake Forest was THIS CLOSE to its first win at Duke in 27 years 😳
