Tuesday ACC Basketball

J.T. Terrell
WAKE FOREST 76, Iowa (Hawkeyes, 20,574 students, Iowa City, IA) 73 – Freshmen Freshman J.T. Terrell scored a season-high 32 points and hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left to help Wake Forest beat Iowa on Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Terrell hit seven 3-pointers, none bigger than when he lofted a shot off the dribble over Bryce Cartwright that dropped cleanly through the net and set off a rowdy celebration by the home crowd.

MIAMI 86, Ole Miss (Rebels, 19,536 students, Oxford, MS) 73 – Durand Scott scored 27 points to lead Miami to a victory over Mississippi on Tuesday night.

The Canes (5-2) nearly wasted a 30-point halftime lead as the Rebels outscored the Hurricanes 26-6 during a late second-half run. Chris Warren hit consecutive 3-pointers, reducing the Miami lead to 79-70 with 4:10 remaining.

Northwestern (Wildcats, 16,640 students, Chicago, IL) 91, GEORGIA TECH 70 – John Shurna scored 21 points, Drew Crawford added 19 and Northwestern shot a blistering 64.6 percent in a runaway victory over Georgia Tech in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

The Wildcats (5-0) shot 31 of 48 overall and buried 12 of 19 3-pointers, with Shurna and Crawford leading the onslaught.

 #2 Ohio State (Buckeyes, 55,014 students, Columbus, OH) 58, FLORIDA STATE 44 – Jared Sullinger muscled his way to the third double-double of his blossoming career with 11 points and 13 rebounds to lead the second-ranked Buckeyes to victory in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Tuesday night.

Sullinger defended Chris Singleton, Florida State’s top scorer, for part of the game. Singleton was held to eight points, half his season average.

The Wolverines (4-2) had lost four straight in the conference’s annual matchups. This time, though, they used freshman Smotrycz and Tim Hardaway Jr. to build a big lead that Clemson (5-2) could not overcome.
