WAKE FOREST 78, FLORIDA STATE 70

Jeff Teague scored 18 points and Chas McFarland recorded his first career double-double to lead Wake Forest to a 78-70 victory over Florida State.

McFarland, a 7-footer from Lovington, Ill., also had three blocked shots. He disrupted Florida State's inside game all night as the Seminole front court was limited to only 10 points.

Wake Forest (15-8, 5-5 ACC) hit its first eight 3-pointers and built a 41-20 lead on its way to a 42-26 halftime lead.

Florida State (14-11, 3-7) rallied to within 50-47 before two McFarland layups and a free throw led a 14-2 run that put the Demon Deacons up 64-49.

Toney Douglas scored 28 points and Jason Rich added 25 for Florida State, which shot just 30 percent in the first half.
