WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP)-- The Hokies brought their 12-4 record into Demon Decon territory Tuesday night and left with an 80-70 win.

Wake Forest drops to 8-8 on the year.

Landers Nolley II and Tyrece Radford scored 21 points apiece for Virginia Tech as the Hokies broke open a tight game early in the second half for an 80-70 road victory over Wake Forest.

Radford, a 6-1 redshirt freshman guard, punctuated an 18-6 run in the second half with a spectacular dunk that became a three-point play over Wake Forest 7-footer Olivier Sarr.

The Demon Deacons suffered their third straight loss without standout guard Chandee Brown.
