ACC scoreboard for Dec. 5
Wake Forest 71, High Point 60: Wake Forest (4-4) trailed High Point (4-4) as late as the 16:34 mark of the second half and was tied with the Panthers at the under-16 time out. The Demon Deacons managed to pull away. G Chase Fischer led Wake Forest with 15 points, and F Travis McKie had 10 rebounds as the Deacons overcame a 27-point game from High Point F John Brown.
Virginia 46, Tennessee 38: Virginia (7-2) led by as many as 15 points, but G Jontel Evans spent more than eight minutes of the second half in the locker room with an injury, allowing Tennessee (4-3) to cut the lead to five. The Cavaliers held on to win their sixth straight, led by a double-double from F Akil Mitchell.
No. 6 Florida 72, Florida State 47: Undefeated Florida (7-0) opened the game with a 12-2 run and Florida State (4-4) never really recovered. The Seminoles had 22 turnovers and shot just 34.8 percent, while the Gators used 14 steals to help spark their offense.
Maryland 100, Maryland-Eastern Shore 68: Maryland (7-1) cruised to its seventh straight win with a lopsided victory over winless Maryland-Eastern Shore (0-8). The Terrapins used the game to experiment with lineups and give developing players time on the court. C Alex Len, G Pe'Shon Howard and G Nick Faust all came off the bench, while freshmen G Seth Allen, F Jake Layman and C Shaquille Cleare got the start.
Star of the night: Maryland senior G Logan Aronhalt came off the bench to hit five of seven 3-pointers. Overall, he was 6 of 9 from the field for 17 points, making him the ACC's high-scorer on the night.
Inside the box score -- 3 numbers worth a second look
4 -- Wake Forest's Fischer had five 3-pointers in the 71-60 win over High Point, and his first four gave the Demon Deacons the lead.
19 -- Florida State trailed Florida 35-15 at the half and scored just four points in the first seven minutes of the second half. With 12:51 remaining, the Seminoles were down 50-19.
3 -- The top three scorers in the night's four games were all on out-of-conference opponents. High Point's John Brown had 27, Maryland-Eastern Shore's Kyree Jones had 24 and teammate Troy Snyder had 19.
Thursday's quote of the day: Maryland coach Mark Turgeon on benching three starters and replacing them with freshmen in the 100-68 win over Maryland-Eastern Shore: "No one was in trouble. You never know what lies ahead.”

Norm Wood of the Daily Press on how Virginia handled the absence of their PG:
Correction...In time Jontel Evans was in locker from (13:41 to 5:15 remaining), #UVA missed 9 of 10 FGs and turned ball over four times.— Norm Wood (@normwood) December 6, 2012
The Washington Post's Mark Giannotto on Evans' injury:
Tony Bennett had no update on Jontel Evans. "I hope it's not anything too bad." Said trainers wouldn't clear Evans to play at end of game.— Mark Giannotto (@CavsJournal) December 6, 2012
Corey Clark of the Tallahassee Democrat on the outlook for the Seminoles:
Snaer and miller have to play better. Much better. Or this season could go offside of a cliff.— Corey Clark/TDO.com (@Corey_Clark) December 6, 2012
Dec. 8 games
The conference takes two days off before 10 teams are in action Saturday.
You don't want to miss: No. 2 Duke vs. Temple in East Rutherford, N.J., 3:15 p.m. ET (ESPN) -- The Owls (5-0) upset the Blue Devils (8-0) in Philadelphia last season. This year's Duke team is a world apart from last year's, however. The Blue Devils are led by F Mason Plumlee (19.6 ppg, 11.0 rpg) and Seth Curry (15.1 ppg). Curry has been battling a leg injury that kept him out of the last game. He'll be tested by Temple's senior backcourt of Scootie Randall (15.8 ppg) and Khalif Wyatt (15.6 ppg).
