NC State claims another rout at Wake Forest, 76-40
NC STATE 76, WAKE FOREST 40

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Lorenzo Brown scored 20 points and
North Carolina State embarrassed Wake Forest on its home floor
once again, routing the Demon Deacons 76-40 on Saturday for its
most lopsided ACC road victory in more than half a century.



C.J. Williams added 15 points and Richard Howell had 12 points
and 12 rebounds for the Wolfpack (13-5, 2-1 Atlantic Coast
Conference). They never trailed in claiming their fourth
straight win in the series and second straight by at least 30
points.



N.C. State - which entered allowing an ACC-worst 70 points per
game - held Wake Forest to just over half that on 29 percent
shooting (16 of 55) and gave up only two field goals during a
stretch of roughly 14 minutes.



C.J. Harris had 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting for the Demon
Deacons (10-7, 1-2), who were 2 of 20 from 3-point range and
have lost three of four.



Scott Wood added 12 points and DeShawn Painter had 12 rebounds
for N.C. State, which led 33-17 at halftime and then pulled away
by outscoring Wake Forest 30-8 to start the second half. Brown
pushed the Wolfpack lead into the 20s when his 3 roughly 3
minutes into the half made it 43-21, and Wood made it a 30-point
game when his free throw with 11:37 left stretched it to 54-23.



By then, the only question was whether the Wolfpack would
surpass the 112-72 rout at Clemson in December 1954 as the most
lopsided ACC road victory in school history.



They threatened that record here for the second time in 11
months, after N.C. State routed the Demon Deacons 80-55 at the
once-inhospitable Joel Coliseum last February for its most
one-sided road win in ACC play since that 1954 season.



The Wolfpack did even better in an encouraging effort from start
to finish after the team was challenged to play better defense
by new coach Mark Gottfried after Georgia Tech shot 51 percent
against them in a double-figure win Wednesday night.



The players certainly got the message. The Wolfpack's defense
was the story once again - this time for all the right reasons.
N.C. State held Wake Forest to just 17 points in the first half,
the Demon Deacons' worst half of the season.



During the final 13 minutes, they put the ball through the
basket from the field only once - on Nikita Mescheriakov's drive
through the lane. The only other field goal during that time
came when Leslie was called for goaltending on Travis McKie's
drive. Wake Forest went to the locker room with more turnovers
(nine) than buckets (six), no Demon Deacon player had more than
one basket and the game was essentially over by then.
