    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Ishmael Smith scored a career-high 28 points and Al-Farouq Aminu had 26 points and 17 rebounds as Wake Forest pulled out a 96-92 double-overtime victory against Xavier on Sunday.

    C.J. Harris added 13 points and L.D. Williams 10 for the Demon Deacons (11-2), who rallied from a five-point deficit late in the first half and a four-point deficit late in the second to win their seventh straight.

    It also was Wake Forest's second overtime win in the past four days, both coming against Atlantic 10 teams. On Thursday, the Demon Deacons beat Richmond 74-68.

    Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 30 points, Jamel McLean added 21 and Terrell Holloway 13 for Xavier (8-5).

    It was the first game in the Skip Prosser Classic, a 10-year series between the schools. It's named for Prosser, who was the coach at Xavier from 1994-2001 and at Wake Forest from 2001 until his death in 2007.
