Wake Forest hands FSU another blowout

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Travis McKie scored 15 points to help Wake Forest beat Florida State 71-46 on Saturday, snapping a four-game losing streak.

C.J. Harris added 14 for the Demon Deacons (11-12, 4-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led the entire afternoon on the way to matching their league win total for all of last season. Wake Forest was in complete control almost from the tip, leading by 11 points in the first half before blowing the game open in a surprisingly easy finish.

The Demon Deacons dominated the boards and finished with a 45-25 advantage, which led to a 19-1 edge in second-chance points and helped them shoot 49.1 percent (26 of 53).

Michael Snaer and Okaro White each scored 13 for the Seminoles (13-10, 5-5), who shot just 25 percent (6 of 24) after halftime and managed just one field goal over a 9-minute span as the Demon Deacons pulled away.

Freshman Codi Miller-McIntyre added 14 points for Wake Forest, while Chase Fischer scored 10 off the bench. Wake Forest's only real hiccup was a 12-for-22 performance (55 percent) at the foul line.

Wake Forest had lost six of seven coming in, with its last win being an 86-84 upset of North Carolina State here on Jan. 22. Three of the past four losses since had come on the road, where the Demon Deacons have compiled an ugly 1-21 record in league play since third-year coach Jeff Bzdelik's arrival.

At least this year's Demon Deacons are making Joel Coliseum a tough place to play again.

Wake Forest improved to 4-1 at home against league opponents, with the only loss being against Duke in a game that came down to the final minute. The Demon Deacons earned their first win against Florida State since February 2009 and held an ACC opponent to fewer than 50 points for the first time since an 87-48 win against the Seminoles eight years ago.

Florida State was coming off a 56-54 win at Georgia Tech on Snaer's driving layup at the horn, the fifth last-second winning basket by the 6-foot-5 senior in the past two seasons. Snaer went 4-for-13 from the field in 36 minutes.
