Jeff Teague scored 11 of his 19 points in the second half, and No. 6 Wake Forest shrugged off a slow start to beat the Highlanders 83-61 on Tuesday night.
Freshman Al-Farouq Aminu added 18 points and 10 rebounds and James Johnson had 12 points and 12 boards for the Demon Deacons (12-0).
Led by second-year head coach Mike Jones, Radford is coming off a 6-26 season and features just two upperclassmen and eight freshmen.
