Vasquez had a career-high 35 points and 11 rebounds and 10
assists. The junior guard hit a key 3-pointer with 1:15 left and
made two free throws with 5.4 seconds remaining to put Maryland up

toward the basket just before the buzzer, many of the 17,950 fans
stormed the court to celebrate the unlikely upset.
The triple-double by Vasquez was the first for Maryland (17-9,
6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) since Derrick Lewis did it twice in
Lawson led the Tar Heels (24-3, 10-3) with 24 points and Danny
Green had 18.
North Carolina led 52-36 with 14:17 left in regulation.
