Posted: Updated:
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Devin Thomas had 17 points and 14 rebounds, and Wake Forest held on to beat Georgia Tech 76-69 on Saturday.
    
Mitchell Wilbekin added 14 points and Darius Leonard had a season-high 13 to help the Demon Deacons (9-8, 1-3) snap a two-game losing streak and give new coach Danny Manning his first ACC victory.
    
They shot 49 percent, held a 41-29 rebounding advantage over the ACC's second-best team on the boards and held on despite making just 11 of 20 free throws in the final 2:39 - during one stretch hitting only 2 of 10.
    
Marcus Georges-Hunt scored all 16 of his points in the second half and Demarco Cox had 14 for the Yellow Jackets (9-6, 0-3), who lost their third straight.
