WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Andrien White scored 15 points to help Wake Forest beat cold-shooting North Carolina 74-57 on Tuesday night.

Brandon Childress added 14 points for the Demon Deacons. Wake Forest shot nearly 56% in the first half to lead by 18 at the break.

The Demon Deacons then pushed that lead to 26 early in the second half. North Carolina shot just 33% and made 1 of 16 3-point tries.

Cole Anthony and Christian Keeling each had 15 points to lead the Tar Heels, who lost their fourth straight game.

It was Wake Forest’s first win against UNC since January 2014.
