— Jeff Teague scored 26 points and Wake Forest shocked No. 2 Duke 86-73 on Sunday night, ending the Blue Devils' 12-game winning streak and giving first-year coach Dino Gaudio his first big victory as the heir of the late Skip Prosser's program.

James Johnson added 24 points for the Demon Deacons (16-8, 6-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), who claimed their first victory against a top-five team since they also knocked off the then-No. 4 Blue Devils on Feb. 2, 2005.

The Demon Deacons held Duke (22-2, 10-1) without a field goal for more than 7 minutes in building the first double-figure lead of the game for either team, with Teague's three-point play with 4:58 left making it 72-62.

No. 6 UCLA 56, Southern California 46

Los Angeles - Darren Collison scored 14 points, Kevin Love added 13 and UCLA defeated Southern California to remain atop the Pac-10 standings by a half-game.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute had 10 points and 10 rebounds in his return from a sprained left ankle. Love grabbed 11 rebounds for his 15th double-double.

The Bruins (22-3, 10-2) maintained their narrow conference lead over No. 7 Stanford.

Taj Gibson had 16 points on 7-of-8 shooting and 12 rebounds to lead the Trojans (15-9, 6-6), denied their first sweep in the rivalry since 2003-04.

No. 20 Notre Dame 71, Rutgers 68

Piscataway, N.J. - Tory Jackson had 17 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds, and Notre Dame held off Rutgers, handing the Scarlet Knights their sixth straight loss.

Kyle McAlarney added 16 points, including two free throws after Rutgers blew an offensive rebound while down a point with about 10 seconds to play, to help the Irish (19-5, 9-3 Big East) win for the 17th time in 20 games.

Rob Kurz added 11 points and 14 rebounds and Luke Harangody had 10 points and eight rebounds as the Irish rebounded from a loss to No. 17 Connecticut on Wednesday.

Anthony Farmer had 16 points and JR Inman added 14 points for Rutgers (10-17, 2-12), which saw a game-tying 3-pointer by Corey Chandler miss badly in the waning seconds.
