Ex-West Charlotte star hits shot for Wake Forest win

Freshman J.T. Terrell, a former star at West Charlotte High, hit a 3-pointer with two seconds remaining to cap a 32-point performance to lead Wake Forest to a 76-73 comeback victory over Iowa in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge Tuesday night in Joel Coliseum.

After trailing by 12 at halftime, Wake Forest (4-3) roared back by hitting 12 of its first 15 field goal attempts in the second half with Terrell igniting the offense.

Tied at 73 in the closing seconds, Wake Forest's Ty Walker blocked a shot by Iowa's Bryce Cartwright, setting up Terrell's heroics.
