BOSTON -- A victory over North Carolina helped cement Wake Forest's spot near the top of the rankings. Beating Boston College did something for the Demon Deacons' psyche as well."I told them, 'We've never beaten Boston College, and pretty soon you've got to say: Enough's enough,'" Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio said Wednesday night after the Demon Deacons' first-ever victory over Boston College -- a year after they lost to BC by 39. "We rubbed salt in that wound this week."
• Wake Forest improved to 15-0 to match the 1926-27 squad for the best start in school history.
• Jeff Teague scored 29 and is averaging 31 in his last three games.
• Boston College has lost three straight after beating then-No. 1 North Carolina on Jan. 4.
