WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Codi Miller-McIntyre had his third-straight 20-point game and Devin Thomas had his second-straight double-double as Wake Forest cruised to a 69-48 victory over Presbyterian Friday at Joel Coliseum.

The Demon Deacons (3-0) went in front for good in the game's opening minutes and would lead the Blue Hose (0-3) by as many as 29 points en route to the win.

Miller-McIntyre led the Deacons with 20 points, in addition to contributing three rebounds, two assists and a steal. He is the first Demon Deacon to hit the 20-point mark in three consecutive games since Travis McKie did so during 2011-12 season.

Thomas scored 10 points and grabbed a game-best 11 rebounds in only 25 minutes of action for his second double-double of the season and the fifth of his career.

Joining Miller-McIntyre and Thomas in double digits was Coron Williams, who scored all 18 of his points from beyond the arc. Freshman Miles Overton led the Demon Deacons with five assists.

Sophomore Andre Washington turned in a strong performance in a career-high 14 minutes of action, scoring four points, grabbing a career-high five rebounds and blocking a career-high three shots. Arnaud William Adala Moto pulled down seven boards for the second game in a row

The Deacs dominated inside, outscoring the Blue Hose 30-18 in the paint and outrebounding them 46-29.

Miller-McIntyre put the Deacs up 5-3 with a 3-pointer early in the first half, and Coron Williams drained three straight 3-pointers to widen the Deacons' lead to 21-11 with 12:12 remaining in the first half sending the Deacons into the locker room at halftime with a 42-27 lead.

Presbyterian led off the scoring in the second half, but Thomas blocked a would-be layup and Miller-McIntyre followed with two straight layups of his own. The Deacs led by as many as 29 points with 6:37 remaining in the second half, thanks to yet another 3-pointer by Williams.

The Deacons will return to action on Monday when they host Jacksonville at 7 p.m. in the Joel Coliseum. The game will be broadcast online on ESPN3 and can be heard on Wake Forest IMG Sports Network.
