Wake Forest Tops Trojans, 77-63
Nov. 29, 2013
Coron Williams scored 15 points for the Demon Deacons.
Tyler Cavanaugh tallied 11 points and Madison Jones and Devin Thomas each had 10 for Wake Forest (6-1), which will face Tennessee on Saturday to end its three-game run in the Bahamas.
Thomas added eight rebounds for Wake Forest, which got 35 points from reserves. The Demon Deacons shot 53 percent.
Pe'Shon Howard added 10 for the Trojans, who face Xavier for seventh place in the tournament on Saturday afternoon.
The Demon Deacons had nine players log at least five minutes of court time in the first half. All nine scored, none more than eight points, all also had at least one rebound and six of them had at least one assist.
USC missed 15 of its first 16 tries from 3-point range. By the time the Trojans connected on 3's in consecutive possessions midway through the second half, it was already too little, too late -- as Wake Forest's lead was still 55-35 after those shots.
Williams snuffed out a Trojan comeback, answering the second of those 3's by USC with one of his own from the left corner, restoring a 23-point edge for the Demon Deacons.
