Secily Ray scored a season-high 21 points to help Wake Forest upset No. 7 Miami 81-74 in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Friday. Chelsea Douglas added 18 points for the seventh-seeded Demon Deacons (19-12), who advanced to the semifinals for the first time since 1988 and just the third time ever. Wake Forest shot 46 percent and blew a 15-point halftime lead, but the Demon Deacons pushed back ahead in the final 2 minutes to seal the victory. Riquna Williams scored 22 points to lead the second-seeded Hurricanes (25-5), who beat Wake Forest 64-39 in late January. But the Demon Deacons played from in front almost the entire night and scored seven straight points to break a 68-all tie. It was the second straight upset in the ACC quarterfinals. Wake Forest's win came right after ninth-seeded North Carolina State beat fifth-ranked and top-seeded Duke.
