James Johnson had 21 points while Ishmael Smith turned in a strong second-half performance Saturday to help Wake Forest beat Virginia 80-64.

Smith scored 13 of his 15 points after halftime for the Demon Deacons (14-8, 4-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), who bounced back from a rare home loss earlier this week. The Demon Deacons lost to Georgia Tech 89-83 on Wednesday to end their league-best 16-game home winning streak, but they never trailed.

Sean Singletary scored 21 points to lead the Cavaliers (11-11, 1-8), who hung around most of the way yet were unable to end the skid that has dragged them to the bottom of the league standings. Virginia has lost nine of 10, including eight straight ACC road games.
