Harris, Wake Forest edge Virginia 55-52
WAKE FOREST 55, VIRGINIA 52

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- C.J. Harris scored 16 points to help
Wake Forest hold off Virginia 55-52 on Wednesday night.



Travis McKie added 14 points for the Demon Deacons (8-6, 1-1
Atlantic Coast Conference), who led by 14 points midway through
the second half before holding off a rally by the Cavaliers in
the final 6 minutes. Wake Forest won despite shooting just 26
percent after halftime and going the final 10 minutes without a
field goal.



Instead, the Demon Deacons clung to their lead by knocking down
just enough free throws to stay ahead, the last coming when
Harris hit two with 5.3 seconds left for what turned out to be
the final margin.



The Cavaliers (11-4, 1-1) had one more chance, but Jontel Evans
threw the ball away on the wing and Joe Harris couldn't collect
the ball in time for a desperation 3-point heave before the horn
sounded.



Freshman Mike Tobey scored 14 points to lead Virginia. Harris
added 13 points, including a contested 3-pointer over Harris
from right in front of the Virginia bench that made it 53-52
with 6.3 seconds left. He also knocked down a 3 with 16.5
seconds left that finally made it a one-possession game and set
the stage for a wild finish.



Virginia shot just 36 percent and committed 17 turnovers, its
second highest total of the season. Those miscues led to 15
points for the Demon Deacons, who shot 52 percent in the first
half before the Cavaliers' stingy defense finally showed up.



Wake Forest's last field goal was a perfectly executed
give-and-go layup by Codi Miller McIntyre off a feed from fellow
freshman Devin Thomas, giving the Demon Deacons a 46-32 lead
with 10:22 left.



Wake Forest made just 5 of 19 shots after halftime but hung on
by making 15 of 18 free throws (83 percent) in the second half.



Virginia was coming off a 61-52 home win against North Carolina
on Sunday night. Beating the Demon Deacons would've made the
Cavaliers 2-0 in the league for the first time since starting
3-0 in Tony Bennett's first season in 2009-10. Before that, the
Cavaliers hadn't won their first two ACC games since the 1994-95
season.
