WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) – Iman Shumpert scored 24 points and Maurice Miller added 20 as Georgia Tech routed Wake Forest 80-54 on Thursday night.

Jason Morris added 13 points for the Yellow Jackets (12-17, 4-11 Atlantic Coast Conference), who pulled away from a seven-point halftime lead to snap an eight-game conference losing streak.

Gary Clark had 15 points, Travis McKie 11 and C.J. Harris 10 for the Demon Deacons (8-22, 1-14), who lost their ninth straight league game.

The loss also continued Wake Forest’s season of frustration under first-year head coach Jeff Bzdelik, who replaced Dino Gaudio after three winning seasons and two trips to the NCAA tournament.

Already assured of its worst record since 1985-86 – going 8-21 in then-head coach Bob Staak’s first season – the Demon Deacons also posted their worst ACC record since 1986-87 (2-12).
