GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -Al-Farouq Aminu had 23 points and 17 rebounds and Wake Forest blocked a school-record 16 shots in a 75-60 victory against North Carolina-Greensboro on Monday night.
Ari Stewart and L.D. Williams had 11 points apiece for the Demon Deacons (9-2). Wake Forest shot 44.6 percent, hit 37.5 percent of its 3-pointers and used a late 16-6 run to break open a surprisingly tight game and win its fifth straight.
Ben Stywall had 13 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Spartans (2-9). They shot 30 percent and lost their fifth straight, at least in part because they at times struggled to generate good looks against Wake Forest's block-happy front line.
The Demon Deacons' blocked-shots record came with 3:53 remaining when Ishmael Smith swatted Kyle Randall's jumper. That broke the previous mark of 14 set against Rhode Island in 1978.
