Last night at Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C.:

BY THE NUMBERS

1-3

Record for Terps this season against ranked teams.

SHOT OF THE GAME

Wake Forest guard Justin Gray’s 3-pointer was a “lights out” shot that stopped Maryland’s short-lived comeback. Gray gave the Demon Deacons renewed momentum that soon swelled the 25-16 lead to 41-23.

SEEN AND HEARD

FLASHBACKS: The Wake Forest student section is something out of a 1950s movie with killer bees. The yellow-and-black tie-dyed shirts and hypnotic spinning wheels are striking even by ACC road standards. Throw in the band and even some aging baby boomers dressed the same and it was an imposing crowd behind Maryland’s second-half basket.

NO WINE AND CHEESE CROWD: Who says you only can tailgate at football games? Demon Deacons fans were under tents in the parking lots several hours before the game.

FALL SPORTS RULE: Maryland ranked sixth nationally in the Directors’ Cup for its overall fall sports production. It was the Terps’ best fall finish ever.
