WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Devin Thomas scored 12 points and Wake Forest snapped a seven-game losing streak by beating Clemson 62-57 on Tuesday night.
Tyler Cavanaugh added 12 points for the Demon Deacons (15-13, 5-10 Atlantic Coast Conference).
They erased an early 10-point deficit, shot 55 percent against the league's second-stingiest defense and held on to avoid just their third winless February since the school started keeping complete records in 1951.
Damarcus Harrison scored 15 points for the Tigers (17-10, 8-7). They pulled within two points on Jaron Blossomgame's three-point play with 29.1 seconds left.
After Cavanaugh made it a four-point game with two free throws with 20.7 seconds left, Rod Hall missed on a contested drive.
Travis McKie added a free throw with 8.2 seconds remaining.
K.J. McDaniels -- the league's third-leading scorer -- had 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting. The Tigers' NCAA tournament hopes took a serious hit.
