Wake Forest Falls to William & Mary, 78-68
Al-Farouq Aminu had the best performance on the boards for Demon Deacons since the 2005-06 season, but it wasn't enough to push Wake Forest to victory as the team fell 78-68 to William & Mary on Saturday night.
William & Mary is 3-1 on the season after a 72-59 loss to Miami (Ohio) at home on Wednesday. The Tribe, which was off to the program's first 3-0 start in 20 years, has beaten Hampton at home and Liberty and High Point on the road this season.
William & Mary's top three scorers, Marcus Thornton, Tim Rusthoven and Brandon Britt are averaging over 72 percent of the team's scoring. Thornton and Rusthoven are averaging 18.7 ppg apiece, while Britt is at 17.0 ppg.
Wake Forest leads the all-time series with William & Mary 33-12. The Tribe snapped a five-game losing streak in the series with a 78-68 win at the Joel Coliseum on Nov. 28, 2009. The series dates back to the 1911-12 season.
Wake Forest and William & Mary were SoCon rivals from 1937 until the Deacons left the SoCon for the newly-formed ACC prior to the 1953-54 season. Wake was 12-6 vs. William & Mary during the teams' SoCon years.
Wake Forest will host Nebraska in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Tuesday, Nov. 27. Tip-off is scheduled for 9:15 p.m. on ESPNU.
The Deacons and Cornhuskers will be playing a rematch after Wake Forest escaped Lincoln with a 55-53 win in last year's ACC/Big Ten event. C.J. Harris scored the game-winning layup with one second remaining.
