TUESDAY HOOP

WAKE FOREST 79, BYU (Cougars, 34,067 students, Provo, UT) 62

Freshman Jeff Teague (right) scored 14 of his season-high 26 points in the first half of Wake Forest's 79-62 rout of Brigham Young on Tuesday night.

Fellow rookie James Johnson added 19 points for the Demon Deacons (11-3), who wrapped up their nonconference schedule in surprisingly easy fashion, never trailing and leading by 19 early in the second half of their sixth straight victory and Atlantic Coast Conference-best 14th consecutive home win.

Chas McFarland added 11 points before fouling out in the final minute and Ishmael Smith scored 10 for Wake Forest, which shot nearly 52 percent and locked down on the Cougars' scorers all night long. BYU, which entered shooting 48 percent, was held to 35.9 percent and committed 22 turnovers. Jeff Teague of Wake Forest drives to the basket past Ben Murdock of Brigham Young.
