Wake Forest Gains Season Split, Downs Miami 62-53
Freshman C. J. Harris scored 12 points to lead Wake Forest to a 62-53 win over Miami in a defensive affair at Joel Coliseum Tuesday night.

With the victory the Demon Deacons improve to 15-5 (5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), while the Hurricanes fall to 16-6 (2-6 ACC). Wake Forest currently sits in sole possession of fourth place in the ACC.

The Deacs led by as many as 17 points in the first half, but the Canes refused to roll over as they cut the Wake lead to three points at 55-52 with 5:38 to play in the game. From there the Deacons' defense would take over, allowing Miami to score only one point in the last five minutes to seal the victory.
