Final Score: Wake Forest 81, Notre Dame 69

Greensboro, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Coron Williams scored a season-high 25 points on 7-of-8 shooting to lead Wake Forest to an 81-69 win over Notre Dame in the opening round of the ACC Tournament.

Devin Thomas had 19 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for the 12th-seeded Demon Deacons (17-15), who recorded their first win in the league's tourney since 2007.
