Al-Farouq Aminu finished with 20 points and 15 rebounds for Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons weren't playing any better than Texas coming into this game, having lost five of six, but they survived for another round after a game neither team was good enough to put away.
Texas started 17-0 but slumped so badly the Longhorns were hoping for a fresh start in the NCAA tournament. Instead, they began the game shooting 3 of 17 from the field and fell behind by double digits.
Harris made a sprawling, reverse layup to put Wake Forest ahead 12-5, and Stewart added a pair of 3-pointers to make it 18-7.
That was when Jordan Hamilton went to work. The Texas freshman, who was averaging under 10 points per game, made four 3-pointers, a tip-in and a pair of free throws to help his team go into halftime ahead 38-37.
Wake Forest's Tony Woods did give his team some momentum with a putback dunk to end the half.
