Dez Wells stars as Maryland rips Wake Forest
He insisted the game carried no extra meaning because Paul was in a courtside seat near the baseline, but said he had a brief chat with the Los Angeles Clippers point guard just before the second half started.
“He told me to slow down,” Wells said. “I said, ‘What, transition or half-court — what do you mean?’ And he said, ‘No, slow down … don’t bust the scoreboard on us.’”
The Terrapins (20-9, 8-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) overcame 19 turnovers and some serious foul trouble to hold the Demon Deacons (12-16, 5-11) without a field goal for the final 4½ minutes and claim their second ACC road win of the season.
“We had an attitude that we weren’t going to lose,” coach Mark Turgeon said.
The Demon Deacons had the ball down 61-57 with 2 minutes left but couldn’t get any closer.
McKie — desperate to make something happen on Wake Forest’s next possession — then turned it over in the lane with about 1½ minutes left, and the Terrapins pulled away from there to claim their second win in three games while giving Wake Forest just its third ACC loss at home.
“We took a couple of quick shots when we were in the double bonus and needed to understand time and score better,” Wake Forest coach Jeff Bzdelik said. “I think teams are recognizing players in their strengths and weaknesses and laying off certain guys and pushing up on others. We need to do a better job of running our offense and moving, and for guys that aren’t known as perimeter shooters yet need to be on the move and cutting to the basket.”
Alex Len added 10 rebounds for Maryland, which made 15 of its 30 shots in the second half to win its sixth straight in the series, including the teams’ previous meeting Feb. 2 in College Park by 26 points.
