Wake Forest led 28-27 late in the first half before Stoglin's basket capped a 9-0 run that helped give Maryland a 36-31 lead at halftime. The Terrapins pulled away in the opening minutes of the second half.

Maryland (17-14) will play No. 1 seed North Carolina in Friday's first quarterfinal game. The Tar Heels swept two regular-season games against Maryland.

Stoglin, the ACC's leading scorer with his average of 21.2 points, had two 3-pointers and hit three free throws when fouled on another 3-point attempt in the 20-4 run, which gave the Terrapins a 56-35 lead.
