PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -- Winning ugly is nothing that Kansas coach Bill Self will complain about.

. In fact, theres times he finds it downright satisfying. Like Thursday, for instance, when Canadian Andrew Wiggins was slowed by the flu, when the second-ranked Jayhawks used reserves more than starters in the second half and when the hottest scorer on the court happened to be wearing a Wake Forest uniform. No problem -- Self was all smiles afterward, because above all else, a win always beats the alternative. Wiggins scored 12 of his 17 points in the final 5:53, and Kansas held off previously unbeaten Wake Forest 87-78 in the quarterfinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis. A pair of reserves, Frank Mason and Joel Embiid, combined for 23 more points for the Jayhawks (5-0), who will face Villanova in the semifinals on Friday night. "Ive always taken great pride in winning ugly," Self said. "I think its good to win ugly. Id rather win pretty, but theres nothing wrong with winning ugly. The thing about it thats frustrating to me, and I think these guys will probably agree, weve always been a team that won ugly by not allowing the other team to score." That wasnt the case Thursday, at least not in the final 20 minutes. Well, the last 20:01, really. Kansas was up by 16 when Codi Miller-McIntyre got a layup to fall for Wake Forest just before the first half ended. Before that shot, Miller-McIntyre had only four points. He finished with a career-best 26, and has scored at least 20 in five of Wake Forests six games this season. "Ive been coaching for a long time and hes one of the best Ive ever been around," Wake Forest coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "Great, great person. Youre seeing the fruits of his labour. ... Ive never seen a young man put the amount of time into his game as he has, both on the court, in the weight room and cerebral. He watches as much film as us as coaches." Miller-McIntyre was seated to Bzdeliks right as he raved about his effort. As his coach spoke, Miller-McIntyres facial expression barely changed. The Demon Deacons let a chance slip away, and Miller-McIntyre wasnt thrilled about that realization. "I hate the term moral victory," he said. The Demon Deacons (5-1) held Kansas to a season-low 47 per cent from the field, but lost forward Devin Thomas after he was ejected for two technical fouls with 7:28 remaining. Bzdelik said he was not given an explanation. And when told that Kansas was getting four free throws, even Self scoffed. "I hated what happened with Thomas," Self said. Tyler Cavanaugh scored 11 points, while Madison Jones and Coron Williams each had 10 for Wake Forest. When Thomas got ejected, Kansas Conner Frankamp made three of the four free throws to put the Jayhawks up 64-52. And when Wiggins, who was largely silent offensively for the first 35 minutes, made a 3-pointer for a 68-57 lead, the overwhelmingly pro-KU crowd might have sensed that Wakes upset bid had run dry. The Demon Deacons had other ideas. Miller-McIntyre kept attacking, and his 3-pointer with just under 2 minutes left got Wake Forest to 77-72. Desperately needing a stop, Wake Forest wound up losing Arnaud Adala Moto to his fifth foul when he got in Wiggins way on a drive with 38 seconds left. Wiggins made the first free throw and missed the second, but the ball bounced out of bounds to Kansas. Naadir Tharpe hit a pair of foul shots to make it a three-possession game, and Kansas escaped. "Were happy we won," Self said. "I thought Wake Forest really outplayed us in the second half." A three-games-in-three-days tournament is a chance for teams to show off their depth. Kansas wasted no time in doing just that. The Jayhawks had eight players score in the first 10 minutes, running out to a quick 24-13 lead. A 17-2 run put Kansas in early control, with the Demon Deacons getting only one field goal in a stretch that lasted nearly 8 minutes. Kansas had seven players score in that burst, no one getting more than four points and Wiggins not even registering a field goal. Wake Forest weathered that storm, and the score was 27-20 with 5:25 left until the break. Thats when the Jayhawks hit the gas again, scoring 13 of the next 17 points before winding up with a 40-26 edge at halftime. Miller-McIntyre got a layup to fall just before the halftime buzzer, and then the Demon Deacons opened the second half on a 16-6 run. But the Jayhawks never lost the lead in the second half, even with reserves in there for long stretches. "Our bench was really good," Self said.

. Make the extra pass, take care of the ball, play defence and get more out of his bench.

. On Thursday theyll learn even more. Despite the cloud of uncertainty that has followed them around from the moment general manager Masai Ujiri was brought in to put his stamp on the franchise, the Raptors have surpassed all pre-season expectations.

. He, the 25-year-old Toronto backup net-minder and Manitoba native, would be making just his fourth start in the past 16 games against the Jets the following evening. It was the word of opportunity for Reimer, who has fallen into the role of backup, outmatched in recent weeks by Jonathan Bernier, his Quebec counterpart.RALEIGH, N.C. - Tomas Tatar and Pavel Datsyuk have been very productive for the Detroit Red Wings whenever theyve been able to play on the same line this season.Tatar scored two goals and Datsyuk added a goal and two assists to lead the Red Wings to a 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.The win came a day after coach Mike Babcock had got his 500th victory as an NHL head coach with a 3-2 comeback win over the New York Rangers.Petr Mrazek made 34 saves for the Red Wings, who have won three in a row and seven of eight.Obviously Pavs line was really good tonight, Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. They have speed and tenacity and the ability to score. All in all, theyre a good line but we should have more good lines.(Carolina) had 34 legitimate shots I thought Mraz did a great job in that they werent coming off him or anything like that. I thought he was good. (Carolina coach Bill Peters) had his team ready to play. They were organized and played fast.Jay McClement scored for Carolina, which has lost three of four, and Cam Ward stopped 19 shots.It was Peters first game against his former boss and mentor Babcock. Peters was an assistant to Babcock for three seasons in Detroit.Weve got to be in the goalies eyes and make it very tough for him, Peters said. There are too many nights where we talk about we have shots but we dont have net front traffic. I thought the puck was coming off their guy a little bit. Weve got to do a much better job of that.Datsyuk beat Ward from the right circle at with 3:24 left in the first. Exactly 2 minutes later, Tatar scored from the left circle off a pass from Datsyuk, with his shot ricocheting off Andrej Sekeras skate and past Ward glove-side.It was a goood win and we didnt have practice I like it, said Datsyuk, who has 12 goals and 10 assists in 16 games this season.

. There was some energy there. You always have more energy if you win. Its important that the team is sticking together. And (Mrazek) was great he was a big reason we won today.Tatar scored his 12th goal with 7:46 remaining in the second, beating Ward stick-side from the slot.I think were playing well together right now, Tatar said of the line with Datsyuk and Darren Helm. Were doing a good job and I hope we stay this way. I think Pavel is the best player Ive ever seen. We all know what he can do. When hes healthy hes a big help for us.Carolina got on the board at 17:11 of the second, with McClement redirecting Tim Gleasons blast from the right point.The Hurricanes killed off a high-sticking double minor against Gleason early in the first period.It was the first game for Carolina forward Andrej Nestrasil against his former team. Nestrasil made his NHL debut for Detroit on Oct. 9 and was picked up on waivers from the Red Wings on Nov. 20.NOTES: The Hurricanes host the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. ... Detroit hosts Toronto on Wednesday night. ... Carolina D Brett Bellemore (lower body) missed his sixth straight game while C Brad Malone, D Jay Harrison and LW Chris Terry just back from a conditioning assignment in Charlotte were healthy scratches. ... Detroit G Jonas Gustavsson (15th straight game) and LW Justin Abelkader (seventh) were out with shoulder injuries. D Jakub Kindl and C Joakim Andersson were healthy scratches. ... The teams will play three times this season, with the other meetings on April 7 at Detroit and April 11 at Carolina.
