1. Everyone should wake up to Wake Forest—and Chris Paul. The blindingly fast and fearless freshman point guard was the catalyst for the Demon Deacons' triple-overtime, 119-114 win over North Carolina last Saturday, dishing out eight assists, making five steals and playing his opposite number, sophomore standout Raymond Felton, to a standstill.

1. Everyone should wake up to Wake Forest—and Chris Paul. The blindingly fast and fearless freshman point guard was the catalyst for the Demon Deacons' triple-overtime, 119-114 win over North Carolina last Saturday, dishing out eight assists, making five steals and playing his opposite number, sophomore standout Raymond Felton, to a standstill.

2. Imagine how much scarier Duke would be if Kris Humphries had stayed. After signing with the Blue Devils, the heralded 6'9", 240-pound forward got a release to stay home and play for Minnesota. At week's end the Golden Gophers freshman was leading the Big Ten in scoring (24.4-point average) and rebounding (11.4).

3. In replacing Mike Jarvis. St. John's should take a hard look at Kansas assistant Norm Roberts. Roberts, 38, doesn't have Division I head-coaching experience, but he is a native of Queens—where St. John's is located—and has proved he can recruit New York City by signing Big Apple products Russell Robinson for the Jayhawks and Charlie Villanueva for Illinois. ( Villanueva opted for UConn when Roberts and coach Bill Self left for Kansas.)
