Wake Forest 79, Georgia Tech 62

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Doral Moore scored 17 points, Bryant Crawford added 16 and Wake Forest beat Georgia Tech 79-62 on Wednesday night.

The teams combined to hit 20 of their first 35 shots from the field, including an 11-of-19 effort by the Demon Deacons, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Wake Forest (10-16, 3-11 Atlantic Coast Conference) was able to string together a 10-0 run that gave it a 36-26 lead following a Mitchell Wilbekin 3-pointer with 3:43 remaining in the first half.

Wilbekin and Brandon Childress each added 11 points for Wake Forest, which committed a season-low five turnovers - more than eight fewer than its 13.2 season average.

"We did a good job of not forcing passes, going to meet passes and making ourselves available as a receiver," Wake Forest coach Danny Manning said. "We made a lot of hockey assists out there tonight with our passing - somebody would get a pass and have a shot, but then give it up to somebody else for a better shot. We were very unselfish tonight."

Crawford, a junior, tied a season-high by dishing out nine assists without committing a turnover.

"Just making that extra pass was the difference," Crawford said. "(There was) no point in shooting a contested shot if somebody else is open."

Josh Okogie had 20 points and Ben Lammers added 14 for Georgia Tech (11-15, 4-9). The Yellow Jackets, who entered Wednesday making a league-worst 4.92 3-pointers a game, connected on only one of its nine attempts from behind the arc.

It was the first game for Georgia Tech since Jose Alvarado suffered a season-ending elbow injury during last week's loss at Duke. Alvarado, a freshman, had started every game at point guard this season. Okogie, a sophomore, took over the bulk of point guard duties against Wake Forest and finished with one assist and four turnovers.

"Josh is our point guard, two guard and three guard and it's tough - he didn't have a real efficient game," Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner said. "One of our Achilles' heals has been turnovers. And it's as bad as it's ever been for me around a team with the injury bug. . But we've got to adjust."
