Waters ties record for Wake in win over Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. - The Wake Forest women (13-16, 4-9 ACC) picked up a huge 86-64 victory over Clemson (10-18, 3-10 ACC) at Littlejohn Coliseum on Thursday night.

The Deacs were led by Brittany Waters, who turned in a career high and school record-tying 40 points during the win. Her previous scoring high was 33 points duriing a game against Miami (Ohio) in 2009. Waters tied the Wake Forest school record set back on February 21, 2005, when Liz Strunk scored 40 points, also at Clemson.

In addition to her 40 points, Waters grabbed a season-high 12 rebounds to record her fourth double-double of the season, and her first since January 6th against Hampton.

Two other Deacons scored in double figures on the evening, as freshman Chelsea Douglas chipped in with 14 points and sophomore Sandra Garcia finished with 10. Douglas also dished out five assists to tie her career-high, and sophomore guard Lakevia Boykin contributed five assists, as well.

The Deacs had a terrific offensive performance, shooting 46.9 percent from the floor on 30-of-64 shooting, including 32 percent from long range. Wake sank 17-of-20 shots from the charity stripe for 85 percent, their second-highest mark of the season.

Wake Forest will conclude regular-season play Sunday afternoon when they host in-state rival N.C. State. The contest will begin at 2 p.m., with Waters and fellow senior Kem Wilson honored prior to tip-off.
