WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Coron Williams came off the bench to score 18 points and Wake Forest pulled away from Tulane in the second half for a 72-57 victory Wednesday.
Codi Miller-McIntyre added 12 points for the Demon Deacons (7-2), who led by seven points at the half only to see Tulane (4-5) rally to tie the score twice in the first five minutes of the second half.
But Williams made a three-point play and drained a 3-pointer from the corner during a 10-0 run that pushed Wake Forest's lead into double digits, 50-40 with 12:40 remaining. The Green Wave could pull no closer than eight points the rest of the way.
Louis Dabney scored 29 points and Jonathan Stark had 10 for Tulane, which has now lost five straight after opening the season 4-0.
