WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Olivier Sarr’s Wake Forest teammates did most of the work against UNC Asheville’s trapping defense Wednesday night. But the 7-footer was perfect when finishing the job in the Demon Deacons’ 98-79 victory over UNC Asheville.
OK, almost perfect.
Sarr came off the bench to score 21 points, shooting 9-for-9 from the field – most on dunks or layups after the Deacons broke through defensive pressure – and grabbed eight rebounds. After the game, Sarr’s only gripe was that he missed one of his four foul attempts.
