Winston-Salem, NC (Sports Network) - Wake Forest has been tough on its home floor this season, and on Saturday the Demon Deacons used that advantage to overpower the top team in the ACC.
C.J. Harris scored 23 points and a raucous crowd at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum stormed the floor after Wake Forest handed second-ranked Miami-Florida its first conference loss of the season with a thorough 80-65 decision.
Harris' five 3-pointers in the first half helped pave the way for Wake Forest (12-14, 5-9 ACC), which improved to 10-4 on its own court and ended a two-game skid.
Codi Miller-McIntyre chipped in 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting and Travis McKie had eight points to go along with 10 rebounds and five blocks in the victory.
After winning their first 13 conference games, the Hurricanes (22-4, 13-1) saw an unexpected and impressive streak come to an end.
Durand Scott scored all 17 of his points in the second half, but Miami committed 13 turnovers and shot a poor 39.1 percent for the contest in suffering its first defeat since Christmas Day.
