WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Brandon Childress never panicked as shot after shot clanged off the rim. Nor did Wake Forest when it fell behind late in regulation against seventh-ranked Duke.

It turned out Childress and the Demon Deacons had a few big shots left in them - enough to end a long losing streak to the Blue Devils in memorable fashion with a court-storming celebration.

Childress ended an awful shooting start with a game-tying 3-pointer near the end of regulation and scored 13 of his 17 in two overtimes to help the Demon Deacons stun the Blue Devils 113-101 Tuesday night. It was Wake Forest's first win against the Blue Devils in nearly six years, ending a run of 11 straight losses that had lasted through coach Danny Manning's tenure.
