    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Al-Farouq Aminu scored eight of his 16 points in overtime to lift Wake Forest over Richmond 74-68 on Thursday night.

    Ishmael Smith added 13 points, Chas McFarland had 13 points and 12 rebounds, and L.D. Williams had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Demon Deacons (11-3), who overcame an eight-point deficit midway through the first half to win their sixth straight.

    Kevin Anderson scored a career-high 31 points for the Spiders (10-4), including a layup with 1:36 left in the second half that put Richmond ahead 62-60. But the Demon Deacons tied the score on C.J. Harris' layup with 41.9 seconds remaining, and Wake Forest missed a chance to win in regulation when McFarland's tip in was ruled to have come after the buzzer.
