Second-ranked Wake Forest shot 33 percent, had 15 turnovers and was outrebounded by a smaller team, and coach Dave Odom was all smiles. "I guess I've been in tougher wins, tougher games, but I can't remember one," Odom said after the Demon Deacons held off No. 7 Clemson, 55-49, at home. "To be able to hold on and win that game is truly amazing. " Wake Forest held Clemson to just one field goal in a span of 18 minutes, but still needed 18 points and 16 rebounds from Tim Duncan to defeat the Tigers for the 12th time in 15 games.

Sure, Billy the goat is cute and Duck Girl is elegant, but we think the sculpture that's the most fun in Rittenhouse Square is Antoine-Louis Barye's 1832 work Lion Crushing a Serpent . (Well, maybe not for the snake, but for everybody else.) That's because you can fit your arm through the lion's mouth and make it look like you're Tarzan. Judging from the worn spots on the bronze around the big cat's jaws and teeth, it looks like many generations have figured this out. (There's also evidence of sympathy for the slithery reptile - the snake's head is polished to a butterscotch hue, as well.)

If Maurice Baker ever puts together a complete game, he'll score 44 points. Baker scored 22 points last night, all in the second half, and No. 6 Oklahoma State withstood a second-half rally for a 62-50 victory last night at Missouri-Kansas City. In the Cowboys' previous game, a 79-44 pounding of Northwestern State, he scored all 22 of his points in the first half.

When Dean Demopoulos got on the plane for Kansas City, Mo., on Sunday, he understood the landscape he was entering. He knew that his predecessor as coach at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Bob Sundvold, who was fired last month, had lots friends in town. So Demopoulos knew he couldn't act as blustery on his first day as his longtime boss, Temple coach John Chaney, often does. "What happened here is in the past," Demopoulos said yesterday at a news conference introducing him as the school's new basketball coach.

There are a zillion ways to recruit basketball players. But if you don't know what you need and don't put yourself in position to get it, you will fail. St. Joseph's coaches obviously took a close look at their senior class and targeted three positions - small forward, shooting guard and center. The coaches still are seeking the center, but a small forward committed last summer and, now, a shooting guard has said yes to St. Joe's. He is 6-5 Erick Woods from Hazelwood East High in St. Louis.

A win on the road in big-time college basketball isn't easy, so when it happens, it's special for the victors. Especially when the last time the team won an away game was more than a year ago. Saint Louis ended a drought of road losses going back to Dec. 9, 1995, in an improbable place last night, stunning No. 11 Louisville, 64-62, at Freedom Hall. It was the Billikens' first win over Louisville in 20 games. The last road win for the Billikens (8-13 overall, 2-6 Conference USA)

Temple opened its basketball season losing by 91-67 to No. 1 North Carolina on Friday at Annapolis, so everything from there shouldn't be as difficult. That said, the Owls (0-1) face a challenging task when they meet Minnesota (2-0) on Thursday in the first round of the eight-team Puerto Rico Tip-off. The other teams include Butler, Mississippi State, Missouri State, Texas Tech, Miami, and Utah. Each team will each play games on Thursday, Friday and Sunday. "Opening with the No. 1 team in the country was a great test for us and this will be another great test for us," Temple coach Fran Dunphy said before the team departed late Tuesday afternoon.

WILL LOUISVILLE coach Rick Pitino survive the scandal involving his basketball team? It's a fair question, considering recent allegations that someone at the school hired strippers to have sex with players and recruits. On Tuesday, ABC's "Good Morning America" aired an interview that escort Katina Powell did with ESPN's "Outside the Lines" in which she said a former Louisville staffer paid her to provide strippers to dance and have sex with recruits on campus. It was the first interview Powell has granted since her book, "Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen," was published earlier this month.

Cedric Jackson swished a 60-foot shot at the buzzer to give Cleveland State a 72-69 victory over No. 11 Syracuse last night in Syracuse, N.Y. "It was a prayer. It's not an everyday shot," said Jackson, a product of Northern Burlington High in South Jersey. He took an inbounds pass with 2.2 seconds left and let the desperation shot go just as time expired to send the Orange (9-1) to their first loss. "It tears your heart out when you see the ball up in the air and you know it's good," said Syracuse's Andy Rautins.

Mario Chalmers had 23 points - and two of his team's four missed dunks - and a ragged No. 4 Kansas beat a plucky Missouri-Kansas City, 85-62, last night. The host Jayhawks (2-0) spent much of the night missing free throws (16-for-31) and blowing assignments and led the Kangaroos (0-1) only 62-52 when UMKC's Jeremiah Hartsook hit a short jumper midway through the second half. Chalmers responded by hitting an open three-pointer, his fourth of the night. But the Kangaroos, playing their first game under new head coach Matt Brown, refused to go quietly.
