Wake Forest Edges Virginia Tech 58-55

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- C.J. Harris hit a pair of 3-pointers in the final minute, including the go-ahead shot with 16.9 seconds left, to help Wake Forest hold off Virginia Tech 58-55 on Saturday in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams.

The Demon Deacons' leading scorer had made just one basket all afternoon before coming up with those huge baskets, the second snapping a 55-all tie to prevent a winnable game from slipping away in painful fashion. Wake Forest (10-5, 1-0) had led by 13 midway through the first half, by eight at the break and by seven with about 7 minutes left before fighting off a late push from the Hokies (11-4, 0-1).

Harris finished with 13 points to lead Wake Forest, while Erick Green scored 19 points to lead Virginia Tech.
