Recap: Wake Forest vs. Boston College

Winston-Salem, NC (Sports Network) - A pair of free throws by C.J Harris with under five seconds to play gave Wake Forest a bit of breathing room as the Demon Deacons captured a 75-72 win over the Boston College Eagles in ACC action at Lawrence Joel Coliseum.

Harris finished with a game-high 29 points, shooting 10-of-13 from the floor, including 4-of-6 behind the 3-point line for the Demon Deacons (9-6, 2-1 ACC) as they logged their fifth win in the last six outings. Travis McKie added 18 points and Devin Thomas a game-high 11 rebounds for the hosts.

The Eagles (9-7, 1-2), losers of two of the last three, were paced by Lonnie Jackson who dropped in 23 points, followed by Olivier Hanlan and Ryan Anderson with 18 and 12 points, respectively, the latter also pulling down 10 rebounds.

Both teams shot better than 51 percent from the floor in the first half and also knocked down five shots from beyond the arc, and even though the Eagles had a 5-3 advantage at the free-throw line it was Wake Forest that carried a 38-36 lead into the break.

In the second half Boston College made a total of just seven field goals, but the team remained close thanks to a 20-of-26 effort at the charity stripe. In the end it was a pair of conversions by Harris at the line that kept BC from coming back in the waning moments.

In a game that featured six ties and seven lead changes, the Eagles turned the ball over 17 times which became 17 points for the hosts.
