Harris Leads Wake Forest Past Furman, 79-55

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- C.J. Harris scored 20 points and Wake Forest pulled away to beat Furman 79-55 on Tuesday night.

Travis McKie added 16 points and freshman Tyler Cavanaugh added 10 of his season-high 12 during the decisive spurt that bridged the halves for the Demon Deacons (5-5).

Playing their first game in 10 days because of final exams, they shot 53.8 percent on 28-of-52 shooting, outscored the Paladins 46-12 in the paint and used a 32-8 run during a span of roughly 11 minutes to cruise to just their second win since Nov. 23.

Stephen Croone and Colin Reddick scored 12 apiece for Furman (3-7). The Paladins had trouble with Wake Forest's length and full-court press, turning it over 13 times and losing for the fifth time in six games.
