Fischer Leads Wake Forest Past High Point 71-60

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Chase Fischer scored 15 points with a career-high five 3-pointers to help Wake Forest hold off High Point 71-60 on Wednesday night.

Freshmen Aaron Rountree and Tyler Cavanaugh added 11 points apiece for the Demon Deacons (4-4).

Wake Forest snapped a two-game losing streak, but there was nothing easy about this one. The Demon Deacons needed to make a late stand to avoid its first loss to High Point since 1934-35 -- and its 14th loss to a school from a non-BCS conference under third-year coach Jeff Bzdelik.

Freshman John Brown had 27 points and 10 rebounds, while Allen Chaney added 10 rebounds for the pesky Panthers (4-4). They only led once in the second half but kept things tight before fading in the final 5 minutes.
