Wake, Maryland win

Associated Press
WINSTON-SALEM ó Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio already knows what to expect from his seniors this season.
This time, Gaudio’s underclassmen were the ones who also stepped .
Freshman C.J. Harris and Ishmael Smith scored 16 points apiece to help Wake Forest cruised to 76-52 win over Winston-Salem State on Tuesday night. Freshman Ari Stewart had 13 points and eight rebounds, while Al-Farouq Aminu added 13 points for the Demon Deacons (4-0), who led by as many as 29 points in the second half in beating their smaller in-city rival for the fourth straight year.
“We’re going to really need those kids,” said Gaudio, who lost All-American guard Jeff Teague and all-ACC forward James Johnson to the first round of the NBA Draft from last year’s 24-7 team.
“They’re going to have to help us as we go through the season. The more experience they get out there in game time, the better.”
Cincinnati 69, No. 21 Maryland 57
