Wake Forest Stuns No. 17 Gonzaga, 77-75

Spokane, WA (Sports Network) - C.J. Harris posted 19 points as Wake Forest rallied from a 13-point first-half deficit to down 17th-ranked Gonzaga, 77-75.

Ari Stewart had 17 points for the Demon Deacons (5-2), who snapped a two-game slide. Chas McFarland added nine points and eight boards in a winning cause as the Demon Deacons dealt Gonzaga just its fourth home loss at the McCarthey Athletic Center since it opened for the 2004-05 season.

Matt Bouldin's game-best 22 points wasn't enough for the Bulldogs (6-2), who saw their five-game win streak halted. Bol Kong added 12 points and Steven Gray had 11, but missed two key free throws late which could have pulled Gonzaga even.

Down 76-73, two Bulldog tries from beyond the arc in the final 15 seconds clanged off the rim, but Al-Farouq Aminu fouled Gray on his attempt with 8.1 on the clock. Gray hit the first, missed the second and let the last one fall off the rim intentionally, but Stewart was fouled on the defensive rebound.

He made the first for a 77-74 game but missed the second, grabbed by Bouldin, who also made the front end of his two tries for a two-point game with 3.5 to play. A lane violation gave the ball to Wake Forest, which managed to keep the ball out of harm's way as time expired.
