Terps defeat Wolfpack 74-69 in the First Round of the ACC Tournament.

The Maryland Terrapins fell behind early in the first half 21-8 after N.C. State ran off a streak of 11 straight points around the ten minute mark. After that though, Eric Hayes hit back to back threes to narrow the lead to 23-14. Hayes hit another three as the Terps went on a 14-0 run to take a 28-25 lead. Both teams went into the half tied at 29.

The second half saw much of the same as the Wolfpack held on to their lead with a little over four minutes to go. That is when Maryland went on another big run in which they scored 11 unanswered points including five free throws by Hayes to give the Terps a 63-62 lead they would not relinquish.

Hayes led the Terps with a career high 21 points including six crucial free throws in the final two minutes of the game. Junior Greivis Vasquez chipped in with 17 points and 10 assists as Maryland continues to attempt to increase their NCAA tournament chances. Maryland advances to the quarterfinals tomorrow against No. 2 seed Wake Forest.
