GREENSBORO, N.C. — Redshirt freshman Reggie Johnson scored a season-high 22 points against his hometown school and 12th-seeded Miami routed fifth-seeded Wake Forest 83-62 on Thursday in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.
Johnson was 8-for-8 from the field and 6-for-6 from the line while James Dews added 15 points for the Hurricanes (19-12).
