C.J. Harris and Travis McKie were too much for the young Boston College Eagles, scoring 23 and 21 respectively to lead the Wake Forest Demon Deacons past the Boston College Eagles, 85-56, on Saturday afternoon at Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C.
Both teams kept it close through most of the first half, with the Eagles leading 14-11 at the 12:33 mark and 21-20 with 7:51 left, but the Demon Deacons used an 8-0 run to pull ahead by seven points with five minutes to go. Wake Forest closed out the first half on a 10-8 run to go ahead 38-29 heading into halftime. Wake's 9-2 run to start the second half put BC in a deeper hole, and they didn't look back, capturing the season series sweep over the Eagles.
Ryan Anderson was solid for the Eagles, totaling a team-high 18 points and nine rebounds. Lonnie Jackson scored 12, Dennis Clifford finished with nine points and six rebounds and Matt Humphrey had eight points. Boston College was limited to 43.1 percent shooting.
Boston College returns home to face Georgia Tech in its home finale on Wednesday.
