WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Fourteen Demon Deacons scored as Wake Forest rebounded from a two-game skid with a 75-48 victory over Nicholls inside the LJVM Coliseum on Monday night.
No Wake Forest (3-2) player scored more than 12 points or played more than 20 minutes as the Deacons were dominant in nearly every facet of the game.
Leading by a 10-8 margin early in the contest, the Deacons took over, outscoring Nicholls 37-12 the remainder of the opening half to take a 47-20 advantage into the break.
Wake Forest put the game away for good by starting the second half on a 13-4 spurt, taking a commanding 60-24 lead.
The Colonels chipped away after Wake Forest cleared its bench, but Nicholls was unable to get within 20 points.
Devin Thomas played just 15 minutes as his double-double streak was snapped at four games. He finished with seven points and six rebounds.
Other Wake Forest scorers included Madison Jones (seven points, three assists), Aaron Rountree III (five points), Andre Washington (four), Darius Leonard (three), Greg McClinton (two), Trent VanHorn (two), Grant O'Brien (two), Rondale Watson (one) and Troy Rike (one).
Wake Forest hit 28 free throws on 36 attempts (77.8 percent), while the Colonels only sank 10.
The game was Wake Forest's "Make a Difference" game, as the team wore pink jerseys and raised awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer.
