No. 2 Orange move to 20-0 by beating Wake

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Freshman Tyler Ennis scored 16 of his 18 points in the second half and No. 2 Syracuse beat Wake Forest 67-57 on Wednesday night to match the best start in program history.

C.J. Fair added 16 points for the Orange (20-0, 7-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) while Trevor Cooney scored all eight of his in the final 1:45.

Syracuse remained one of three unbeaten teams in Division I with No. 1 Arizona, which beat Stanford 60-57 on Wednesday, and No. 4 Wichita State.

The Orange pulled away late while sidestepping a possible trap with a visit from No. 17 Duke coming up this weekend, and joined the 2011-12 group as the only Orange teams to win their first 20 games.

But in their first visit to Tobacco Road as ACC members, they had to work for it against a Wake Forest team that had been perfect at home and tough on visitors in the top five.

Travis McKie scored 12 points for the Demon Deacons (14-7, 4-4), and his free throw with 4:10 left pulled them to 54-49.
