Dez Wells scored 18 points to lead the Terps, who couldn’t earn their first win in Chapel Hill since knocking off the then-No. 1 Tar Heels in 2008. It was Big Ten-bound Maryland’s final regular-season ACC game at the Smith Center, where the Len Bias-led Terps handed Dean Smith’s Tar Heels their first loss in the new building in 1986.

“We weren’t making shots, and we turned it over a couple of times and let North Carolina get out and run,” said Evan Smotrycz, who scored 14. “… We were battling (in the second half). We just didn’t capitalize on the chances that we had.”
