WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- On Wednesday night we showcased NC State swimmer Stephen Coetzer on our sports segment on WWAY. This wasn't our first time featuring the former Laney Buccaneer swimmer. In fact we went down memory lane with the former Buccaner who's now one of the top swimmers on the nationally ranked Wolfpack swim team.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) - Mason Plumlee scored a career-high 32 points and No. 5 Duke held off Wake Forest 75-70 on Wednesday night.

Seth Curry added 21 points, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer in the final minutes for the Blue Devils (18-2, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They shot nearly 52 percent - despite going just 2-for-14 from 3-point range - and got a huge night from their senior big man to earn their first road victory of the season.

Freshman Devin Thomas had 15 points for the Demon Deacons (10-10, 3-5), who were denied their second upset of a nationally ranked state rival in eight nights.

C.J. Harris and Travis McKie added 14 points each for Wake Forest, which led 66-65 on Tyler Cavanaugh's three-point play with 4:02 left.
