Wake Forest (13-16, 5-11) at Duke (24-3, 11-3)

8 p.m., Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham (WMYT)

Not many players have won their matchup with freshman Jahlil Okafor this season, but that’s what Devin Thomas did in Winston-Salem in Duke’s 73-65 ACC win Jan. 7. Thomas, who face-guarded Okafor while a power forward doubled him from behind, limited Okafor to six shot attempts and 12 points. Wednesday will be Okafor’s opportunity to show what he learned from the first matchup. Laura Keeley
