WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - DeMya Walker scored 23 points, and 15th-ranked Virginia never trailed in a 60-51 victory Wednesday night over Wake Forest, which finished 0-16 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The Demon Deacons (4-22) kept the game close in the first half, trailing only 27-22 at the break. But Virginia (18-7, 9-6) went on a 17-6 second-half run to go up 55-40 with 3:39 left and put the game out of reach.
Olivia Dardy led the Demon Deacons with 17 points, and Alisha Mosley added 14.
Neither team shot the ball well from the floor, with Virginia going 18-for-52 and Wake Forest shooting 15-for-54.
But Virginia won the game largely at the free-throw line. The Cavaliers hit on 23-of-35 attempts.
Virginia took a 22-12 lead in the first half, but Wake Forest was able to close the gap behind six free throws by Kristen Shaffer and a 3-pointer by Mosley over the final four minutes.
