WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-- Wake Forest’s stingy defense and three-point shooting proved to be too much to overcome for Virginia Tech as the Hokies dropped a 66-44 decision to the Demon Deacons Sunday afternoon at Lawrence Joel Memorial Coliseum. Wake improved to 18-6 on the year and 5-5 in ACC action while the Hokies dropped their fourth straight to fall to 11-15 and 1-10 in league play.

Wake Forest jumped out to a 29-15 halftime advantage and Virginia Tech could get no closer than 12 points the rest of the way. The Hokies shot only 25 percent (6-24) in the first half while scoring a season-low for points in any half. The Deacs connected on five treys in the opening stanza which proved to be the difference as Tech was held without a triple.

Brittany Gordon (So., Howard County, Md.) was the only Hokie in double figures with 12 points to go along with 10 rebounds. The double-double was the first of Gordon’s career. Utahya Drye (Jr., Durham, N.C.) and Lindsay Biggs (Jr., Midlothian, Va.) added eight points each.

Wake Forest placed four players in double figures led by Camille Collier with 20 points followed by Brittany Waters with 11 points. Sarah Riddle scored a career-high 10 points while Alex Tchangoue added 10 points and 14 rebounds for her seventh double-double of the season.

The Demon Deacons limited the Hokies to 31.6 percent (18-57) from the field while forcing Tech into 21 turnovers. Additionally, the Wake bench outscored Tech’s bench, 32-8.

The Hokies return to action on Thur., Feb. 19 , when they travel to Durham, N.C. for a 7 p.m. contest at No. 4/10 Duke.
