Travis McKie scored 15 points to help Wake Forest beat Florida State 71-46 on Saturday, snapping a four-game losing streak.

C.J. Harris added 14 for the Demon Deacons (11-12, 4-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led the entire afternoon on the way to matching their league win total for all of last season. Wake Forest was in complete control almost from the tip, leading by 11 points in the first half before blowing the game open in a surprisingly easy finish.

The Demon Deacons dominated the boards and finished with a 45-25 advantage, which led to a 19-1 edge in second-chance points and helped them shoot 49.1 percent (26 of 53).

Michael Snaer and Okaro White each scored 13 for the Seminoles (13-10, 5-5), who shot just 25 percent (6 of 24) after halftime and managed just one field goal over a 9-minute span as the Demon Deacons pulled away.
