Dez Wells, Maryland move on to ACC meeting with Duke
Question of the Day
The Terps, meanwhile, were content to give Wake Forest those free throws in exchange for 2- and 3-point shots — mainly because they weren’t missing them. Maryland was 14 of 30 from the field in the second half and 23 of 48 (47.9 percent) for the game.
Logan Aronhalt followed Jones’ layup by hitting a 3-pointer that put Maryland up 54-52. After Harris tied it with two free throws, Len sent home an alley-oop dunk from Allen to make it 56-54.
Howard scored five straight points for the Terps and they pulled away from there.
Nick Faust and Howard each finished with 10 points for the Terrapins, who snapped a two-game losing streak and won for the first time since a 67-57 win over Wake Forest on March 2 in Winston-Salem.
This marked Wells‘ second straight 20-point performance against the Demon Deacons. He hung 23 on them in that victory to spoil Chris Paul Day, making 11 of 12 shots while repeatedly slashing his way through the lane.
“We did a great job stopping Dez Wells in the first half in transition, and most of his points were (on) jump shots,” Thomas said. “We would live with that because he isn’t a good jump shooter — except for today — but normally he likes going to the rack. And we weren’t going to allow him to go 11 for 12 from the rack again.”
Wake Forest entered 2-13 in road and neutral-site games and hadn’t won anywhere but the Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem since beating UNC Greensboro here on Dec. 22. But the Demon Deacons sure made themselves comfortable here early.
Harris scored 13 points in the first 13½ minutes, hitting two 3-pointers roughly 45 seconds apart during the 18-7 run that put Wake Forest up 29-22.
But after Maryland opened the second half with a quick 9-2 spurt led by Wells, neither team led by more than three until the Terps’ late run.
