WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – C.J. Harris scored a career-high 29 points and Wake Forest held off a late Boston College rally for a 75-72 Atlantic Coast Conference win Saturday.
Travis McKie added 18 points for the Demon Deacons (9-6, 2-1), who overcame shooting problems early in the first half to win their second straight ACC game.
Lonnie Jackson scored 23 points, Olivier Hanlan added 18 and Ryan Anderson had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Eagles (9-7, 1-2), who trailed by 12 points in the second half.
