Quarterfinal Friday got underway at noon ET in the ACC Tournament as the top-seed North Carolina took on Maryland. UNC pulled away late to win, 85-69. The win may have been costly for the Tarheels, as John Henson hurt his wrist and will be a game-time decision for Saturday.
UNC led by ten at the half, but back-to-back three pointers from Reggie Bullock increased their lead. Maryland did cut the deficit down to seven points a few times, but couldn’t get any closer.
Maryland was out-rebounded 41-34 and allowed UNC to shoot over 50% from the field.
Terrell Stoglin of Maryland led all scorers with 30 points, but teammates Nick Faust and Sean Mosley made just 6-of-24 shots. For the Tarheels, four players scored in double-figures with Kendall Marshall contributing a double-double: 13 points and 12 assists.
