Reid leads LSU past Wake Forest 75-61 in ECC title game


DESTIN, Fla. (AP) — Efton Reid scored 14 points and sparked a big first-half run and LSU breezed to a 75-61 victory over Wake Forest in the championship game of the Emerald Coast Classic. Wake Forest led 11-6 after a 3-pointer by Khadim Sy with 12:18 left in the first half, but Reid slammed home a dunk that seemed to spark the Tigers (7-0). Tari Eason followed Reid with a bucket and two free throws and Brandon Murray, Xavier Pinson and Alex Fudge all hit 3s to cap a 15-0 run that left the Tigers leading 21-11 with 8:02 left in the first half. The Demon Deacons (6-1) closed to within three points, but Eason hit a 3 to start a 7-0 spurt and LSU led 31-21 at halftime.  The Tigers’ lead never dropped below nine after intermission.
