from theacc.com comes the news of the Wake Waterloo in Winston. You have to hate for the Demon Deacons who had won 16 straight at the Joel Coliseum:

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) – Anthony Morrow scored 21 of his 23 points in the second half and Georgia Tech rallied to snap Wake Forest’s 16-game home winning streak 89-83 on Wednesday night.

The Yellow Jackets, who trailed by 12 points early in the second half, took the lead for good on Morrow’s 3-pointer with 1:48 left. Morrow’s two free throws with 50.3 seconds left put Georgia Tech ahead 86-83, and he hit two more with 29.9 seconds left to put the game away.

Zack Peacock added 15 points and Maurice Miller and Alade Aminu scored 11 apiece for Georgia Tech (11-10, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), which has won three of four since starting league play 0-3.

Jeff Teague scored 19 points, Harvey Hale had 18 and James Johnson 13 for Wake Forest (13-8, 3-5), which hadn’t lost at home since Feb. 3, 2007 to Maryland.
