Wake Forest upsets No. 8 Duke as court storming leaves Kyle Filipowski shaken up

Hunter Sallis scored a game-high 29 points and Andrew Carr added 18 points and four assists to lead Wake Forest to a memorable 83-79 upset victory over No. 8 Duke on Saturday afternoon at Lawrence Joel Veteran Memorial Coliseum.

Trailing 81-79 with nine seconds remaining in the game, the Blue Devils had a chance to tie or take the lead, but guard Tyrese Proctor turned it over with three seconds remaining. Proctor immediately fouled Sallis, who hit a pair of free throws to secure the win, the Demon Deacons’ first victory over a ranked opponent this season.

As the final buzzer sounded, fans stormed the court to celebrate Wake Forest’s epic win. Duke preseason All-American Kyle Filipowski happened to be right in the middle of the court storming and appeared to collide with a fan who rushed the court. Filipowski can be seen grimacing in pain while being helped off the court with assistance from his Duke teammates. Both coaches and players surrounded Filipwowski to protect him from further injury, including Duke head coach Jon Scheyer.

There were no immediate details reported on the extent of the injury.

Filipowski, who is projected to be a top-20 selection in this year’s NBA Draft, finished the game with 17 points and eight rebounds.
