Wake Forest Upsets Indiana

Article excerpt

Bryant Crawford's driving layup with 3.2 seconds to play gave Wake Forest the lead and the Demon Deacons beat No. 13 Indiana 82- 78 on Monday in the opening round of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational in Lahaina, Hawaii.

Crawford had the ball at the head of the key for about 8 seconds before he put his head down and drove to the basket to give Wake Forest (3-1) the lead for good. After Indiana turned the ball over on a long pass, John Collins made two free throws with 0.7 seconds left for the final margin.

"That was a great play by Bryant, to turn the corner and to find the seam and score," Wake Forest coach Danny Manning said. "We were fortunate enough to score."

Wake Forest will face No. 19 Vanderbilt, a 92-55 winner over St. John's, in the semifinals Tuesday.

Indiana (3-1) led 75-67 with 4:50 left, but the Demon Deacons went on a 9-2 run to take a 78-77 lead on a drive by Crawford with 24 seconds to play.

Troy Williams made one of two free throws with 13 seconds left to tie the score.

Devin Thomas led Wake Forest with 21 points while Dinos Mitoglou scored all 18 of his points in the first half. Crawford finished with 13 points and Collins had 10.

Williams led the Hoosiers with 16 points and Robert Johnson added 14. Collins had nine rebounds for Wake Forest.
