"Oh Lord it's hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way.
I can't wait to look in the mirror, because I get better looking each day."
When you think you are perfect, it is so hard to see your faults.
The Demon Deacons' C.J. Harris scored 23 points and Wake Forest beat No. 2 Miami 80-65 on Saturday to snap the Hurricanes' 14-game winning streak. Codi Miler-McIntyre added 15 points while Harris was 5 for 5 from 3-point range to lead the Demon Deacons (12-14, 5-9 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Wake Forest shot 54 percent, led by double figures for the entire second half and reeled off 12 straight points to pull away for their biggest victory under third-year coach Jeff Bzdelik.
Durand Scott had all 17 of his points in the second half for the Hurricanes (22-4, 13-1), the last of the schools in the six BCS conferences to get its first league loss. Shane Larkin added 13 points, Trey McKinney Jones had 11 and Kenny Kadji finished with 10, but Miami was outrebounded 36-35 by the younger, smaller Demon Deacons.
With your Miami Hurricanes basketball team sitting at 13-0 in the ACC it was almost too easy for them to think that they were invincible. They looked like a team on a mission and a team that could not be beaten. That was true for the UM basketball team until today against Wake Forest.
The same Miami team that had a history of beating down Duke and UNC got a taste of their own medicine when the home town Demon Deacons humiliated them on their home court.
It went from bad to worse for the Jim Larranaga's Hurricanes against Wake as the Deacons dominated play throughout the game in front of their downright giddy audience.
In the end, it was a failure of coaching and execution that led to the first ACC loss for Miami. We will see what happens next time these teams meet.
