GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Dearica Hamby finished with 25 points, 16 rebounds, eight assists and two steals as No. 11 seed Wake Forest women beat 14th-seeded Pittsburgh 72-58 in the first round of the ACC tournament on Wednesday night.

Chelsea Douglas added 20 points for Wake Forest (15-15), which will take on sixth-seeded North Carolina on Thursday.

Pittsburgh pulled within four on an Ashlee Anderson layup with 17:03 remaining, but the Demon Deacons rattled off the next 12 points, including six by Milan Quinn, to open up a 50-34 advantage with 12:40 to play. Pitt (11-20), which was playing in its first ever ACC tournament, went more than 5 minutes without scoring during that stretch and never again got closer than down nine.

Asia Logan finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds for Pitt, which made just 21 of 61 field goals, including 4 of 19 from 3-point range, and was out-rebounded 45-31.
