Maryland 70, Wake Forest 64

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 11, 2012
Terrell Stoglin scored 20 points, Sean Mosley had 15, and Maryland beat Wake Forest 70-64 Wednesday night for its first Atlantic Coast Conference victory under coach Mark Turgeon. The Terrapins (11-4, 1-1) blew most of an 18-point lead but held on for their eighth win in nine games. James Padgett contributed 11 points, including six down the stretch. Travis McKie matched his career high with 25 points for Wake Forest (10-6, 1-1). Ty Walker had eight points and seven blocks for the Demon Deacons, who made more field goals than the Terps (25-21) but were outscored 24-9 at the foul line. Maryland's last basket was by Padgett with 5:35 left, a follow-shot that made it 60-54. But the Terrapins were good enough at the foul line to give Turgeon a memorable victory in his first season as Gary Williams' successor. Wake Forest trailed 44-26 before McKie sank two free throws to begin a 6-0 spree that cut the gap to 12 points. Seven-foot-1 center Alex Len followed with his only basket of the game for Maryland, but McKie and Tony Chennault each made layups and C.J. Harris added two foul shots to get the Demon Deacons to 46-38. After Stoglin made a pair of free throws, Chase Fisher scored from long range for Wake Forest. Minutes later, Walker reeled off six straight points - two follow-shots and a dunk - to make it 50-47 with 8:54 remaining. Len then made a foul shot and missed the second, but Mosley grabbed the rebound and turned it into Maryland's first basket in more than six minutes. That gave the Terrapins a six-point lead. Wake twice got within four, but could get no closer. Mosley scored 11 points, Stoglin had 10, and the Terrapins outrebounded Wake Forest 23-16 in taking a 40-24 halftime lead. Maryland used runs of 16-6 and 12-1 to turn a 9-6 deficit into a 34-16 advantage. Stoglin made a pair of 3-pointers during the first surge, and Mosley contributed five points to the latter spurt. McKie scored 13, accounting for more than half of Wake Forest's points. The Demon Deacons did not get a point from their bench in the first half.
