Yale vs Wake Forest

Wake Forest 72, Yale 71

  •  

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - C.J. Harris scored 23 points and Wake Forest held off pesky Yale's second-half rally to win 72-71 on Thursday night.

Travis McKie added 14 points, Nikita Mescheriakov 13 and Tony Chennault 10 for the Demon Deacons (9-4), who never trailed in the game but saw the Bulldogs make things interesting in the final minutes.

Wake Forest led by as many as 19 points midway through the final half, only to see Yale pull within 68-66 on Austin Morgan's 3-pointer with 1:02 remaining.

But Chennault hit a layup 12 seconds later, followed by Harris' two free throws, to give the Demon Deacons some breathing room.

Greg Mangano had 20 points and 12 rebounds and Morgan added 15 points for Yale, including a 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds left. Michael Grace scored 12 and Reggie Willhite 10 for the Bulldogs (8-3), who saw their six-game winning streak snapped.

Leading by six points at the break, Wake Forest opened the second half with a 14-2 run, capped by two Mescheriakov free throws, to go up 48-30 with 15:25 left.

The Demon Deacons would push their lead to 19 points a few minutes later, with Harris' 3-pointer with 11:31 remaining giving Wake Forest a 56-37 margin.

However, Yale responded with an 18-5 run, with two Morgan free throws cutting the Demon Deacons' lead to 63-58 with 2:19 left. The Bulldogs pulled within five points twice more before Morgan's 3 pulled them within striking distance.

The same thing happened in the first half - Wake Forest raced out to a big lead, only to see Yale fight back.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by McKie and Harris gave the Demon Deacons a 25-14 lead - their biggest of the first half - with 6:47 remaining.

However, the Bulldogs cut Wake Forest's lead to four points twice in the final two minutes, the last at 32-28 on Willhite's layup with 1:03 left. But Chennault hit a jumper with 1 second remaining to put the Demon Deacons up 34-28 at the break.
