The Hurricanes suddenly awoke from their season long slumber to dominate the Demon Deacons from start to finish as Senior James Dews (15 points), Sophomore DeQuan Jones (14) and North Carolina native Reggie Johnson took out their entire season's worth of frustration on Wake Forest.
Miami took a 41-27 lead into halftime and reversed a trend by finishing the game strong to win going away by 21 points. The Hurricanes shot 52% from the floor for the game and an amazing 83% from the charity stripe.
Big Reggie, who struggled early this year with his weight control, poured in a season high 22 points on 8 for 8 shooting from the floor and by being a perfect 6 of 6 from the free throw line.
Thanks to big Reggie and this really big win this season is not over yet. The 12th seeded Hurricanes will face 4th seeded Virginia Tech in a second round game on Friday.
