Wake had chances to win, but two plays defined their frustration: the clock failed to start and on the reset, Wake couldn't get the ball in. Then CJ Harris was coming down court and slipped on a wet spot and was called for traveling.

It's a drag that those two situations were so critical for Wake, but sometimes that's just how it goes.

Wake's at the point where they can either accept the status quo or fight through to something better. Sometimes you have to get mad to do that. This team has talent and more on the way. They need to figure things out in the short term though: is this good enough? Or will Wake wake up?

Florida State gave Miami a really good game before falling 74-68. If it's not clear by now that Shane Larkin has become an official pain in the ass, consider what Leonard Hamilton had to say after the game:

"We didn't have an answer for Larkin. His speed, quickness and his ability to make decisions is phenomenal for a sophomore guard. I haven't seen anybody that has the whole package like he does."

Unfortunately for Hamilton, Larkin was seriously interested in FSU before an assistant left. His attention waned though and he ended up at Miami.

In Thursday night's only game, Clemson heads down to Hotlanta to take on Tech.  Going with the home team seems smart
