GW stayed with the Demon Deacons for about 32 minutes and trailed 75-70 with 8:57 remaining before Wake Forest All-American Chris Paul took over and put the game away.

Paul scored 25 points and had six assists to carry the Demon Deacons. Wake Forest led by 14 points early in the second half, but struggled to put away the Colonials (0-1).
