Greivis Vasquez scored 22 points Friday night and Maryland advanced to the semifinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament with a
75-64 upset of No. 9 Wake Forest, which was doomed by its worst shooting performance of the season.
Maryland (20-12) pulled away from a 36-31 halftime lead as the
Demon Deacons (24-6) missed time and time again, finishing at 29.7
percent from the field. The Terps made up for a 65-63 loss to Wake
Forest 10 days earlier and won for the second straight night,
following up a win over North Carolina State.
They'll play Duke or Boston College in the semis, giving them
yet another chance to impress the NCAA tournament selection
James Johnson led Wake Forest with 20 points. The Demon Deacons
have already done plenty to land an NCAA bid, but the one-and-done
showing at the Georgia Dome could hurt their seeding.
