In their first game without Chris Singleton the Seminoles scored 31 first half points against
In the first half the Noles were hobbled by 3 guards (Michael Snaer, Derwin Kitchen and Luke Loucks) picking up a pair of fouls. In the 2nd half Leonard Hamilton was able to more effectively structure his rotations, and Bernard James and Okaro White benefitted. James had 15 points, 8 boards and 2 blocks, while White scored 13 points and added 2 blocks and 2 steals. Ian Miller, in front of a block of family, scored a career high 14 points but on an inefficient 12 shots. Freshman Travis McKie, shut down by Singleton in game 1, had 20 points and 8 boards to lead Wake Forest. The game was finished by walk-ons.
This one wasn’t as fast paced as the first time these two teams matched up, but was still a 75 possession game. Against a lazy defense the Noles only turned the ball over on only 17% of their trips, which is one of the better games all season. And they had 15 assists, led by Michael Snaer’s four.
The Noles now stay on the road for a Wednesday night game at
