WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski might have poured too much emotion into the fourth-ranked Blue Devils’ trip to Wake Forest.

Duke’s players didn’t seem to have enough emotion.

The Demon Deacons upset Duke 82-72 on Wednesday night after Coach K experienced enough dizziness and lightheadedness to force him to kneel during a late timeout. He skipped the postgame news conference.

Associate head coach Steve Wojciechowski — who filled in for him — said Krzyzewski has not been sick, is in good shape and expects to make a full recovery.

“There was a great emotional investment in the game,” Wojciechowski said, “and I think maybe the emotion got the better of him.”

Duke (23-7 overall, 12-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) was playing for the first time in more than a week.

Wake Forest (16-14, 6-11) took control with a 17-0 run late in the second half. Tyler Cavanaugh scored a career-high 20 points for the Demon Deacons.
