Wake Forest got a huge win.
Kevin Love had a (somewhat) huge game.
Here's Monday morning's edition of What You Need To Know.
Notable game from Sunday: Dino Gaudio got the biggest win of his career, an 86-63 victory over No. 2 Duke that led to a storming of the court. It was nice to see, particularly for a program that has endured tragedy with the death of Skip Prosser. And the byproduct is that it should shoot Tennessee to second in Monday's AP poll, meaning Saturday's game at FedExForum between Memphis and Tennessee will be a No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown.
Notable performance from Sunday: Kevin Love sank a pair of 3-pointers and finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds to lead UCLA to a 56-46 victory over crosstown rival Southern California. The freshman center has scored in double-figures every game this season while recording 15 double-doubles for the Pac-10-leading Bruins.
Notable game scheduled for Monday: Two of the top three teams in the Atlantic 10 will get together when Xavier plays at Rhode Island. The Musketeers are 21-4 overall, 9-1 in the league. The Rams are 20-5 overall, 6-4 in the league. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET.
