No. 10 Virginia holds off Wake Forest 76-67 for ACC road win

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Armaan Franklin scored 18 of his 25 points during the first half and No. 10 Virginia survived blowing nearly all of a 19-point lead to beat Wake Forest 76-67. Kihei Clark added 12 points despite foul trouble. Virginia had a hot-shooting tear that pushed the Cavaliers to a 34-15 lead only to see the Demon Deacons climb back within a point with 8 1/2 minutes left. But Virginia got enough timely baskets and stops to hang on for coach Tony Bennett’s 400th career victory. Damari Monsanto had a career-high 25 points for Wake Forest. He hit seven 3-pointers.
