WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- James Johnson had 24 points and 11 rebounds and No. 8 Wake Forest avenged its worst loss of the season
by holding off Georgia Tech, 87-69, on Wednesday night.

Less than three weeks after the Yellow Jackets stunned the Demon Deacons for their only Atlantic Coast Conference win of the season, Wake Forest saw a 23-point lead cut to five before pulling away behind Johnson's dominance inside.

Jeff Teague added 15 points for Wake Forest (20-4, 7-4), freshman Al-Farouq Aminu scored 14 and got the better of his older brother, Georgia Tech senior Alade Aminu, who was held to nine points.

Lewis Clinch hit six 3-pointers and scored 24 points and Iman Shumpert added 14 for Georgia Tech (10-15, 1-11), which has lost five straight and 10 of 11.
