Wake Forest 76, Iowa 73
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Freshman J.T. Terrell scored a season-high 32 points and hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left to help Wake Forest beat Iowa 76-73 on Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Terrell hit seven 3-pointers, none bigger than when he lofted a shot off the dribble over Bryce Cartwright that dropped cleanly through the net and set off a rowdy celebration by the home crowd.
Iowa called a quick timeout and set up an inbound play, but Travis McKie tipped Eric May’s pass to halfcourt and Terrell ended up with the ball as time expired.
Terrell’s 32 points are the most by an Atlantic Coast Conference freshman this season. The Demon Deacons (4-3) needed every one of them, too, as they fell behind by 18 points late in the first half before rallying to set up the thrilling finish.
May scored 17 points to lead the Hawkeyes (3-4).
Kentucky 91, Boston U. 57
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Brandon Knight scored 23 points and No. 10 Kentucky bounced back from its first loss of the season with a 91-57 win over Boston University on Tuesday night.
Terrence Jones added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Wildcats (5-1), who shot 59 percent from the field and overwhelmed the Terriers (4-4) over the final 20 minutes.
Kentucky led by just seven points at halftime before opening the second half on an 18-3 run to break things open.
John Holland led the Terriers with 20 points but Boston U. shot just 29 percent and had no answer after the Wildcats shook off a sluggish first half with perhaps their best basketball of the season.
Kentucky coach John Calipari was on the sideline two days after the passing of his mother, Donna, who died on Sunday following a lengthy battle with cancer.
