Terrell Leads Wake Forest Past Iowa, 76-73

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Freshman J.T. Terrell had 32 points, including the game-winning three-pointer with 2.7 seconds left, to lead Wake Forest to a 76-73 win over Iowa in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Tuesday evening at the Lawrence Joel Coliseum.

The Deacons move to 4-3 on the season while the Hawkeyes fall to 3-4.

With the game tied at 73 in the final minute, Terrell made a fadeaway three-pointer from 25 feet to put the Deacs in front 76-73. On the ensuing inbounds pass, Ty Walker knocked the pass away from the Iowa player as time expired.

Terrell started the game 0-for-3 behind the arc, but proceeded to hit seven of his final eight three pointers. Terrell finished with 32 points, becoming the first Wake Forest freshman to score 30-plus points in a game since Chris King scored 34 points on March 4, 1989. Terrell's seven three pointers made also tied the school's freshman record, equaling the mark set by Robert O'Kelley on January 31, 1998.

Sophomores C.J. Harris and Ari Stewart scored in double figures for the Deacons as well, with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Junior Ty Walker fell just short of a double-double, with eight points and eight rebounds, along with five blocks.

The Wolverines (4-2) had lost four straight in the conferences' annual matchups. This time, though, they used freshman Smotrycz and Tim Hardaway Jr. to build a big lead that Clemson (5-2) could not overcome.

Smotrycz had a 3-pointer and a pair of three-point plays as Michigan took a 36-16 lead. The Tigers cut the lead to 45-37 before Jordan Morgan scored six consecutive points to restore Michigan's edge. The Wolverines improved to 4-0 all-time against Clemson.
