  • GREENSBORO, N.C. — Dez Wells scored a career-high 30 points and Maryland upset No. 2 Duke 83-74 on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.
    Wells was 9 of 13 from the field and 10 of 10 from the free throw line to lead the seventh-seeded Terrapins (22-11).
    They never trailed, held the league's best team from 3-point range to 4-of-25 shooting from beyond the arc, and bolstered their NCAA tournament credentials with their second straight win over Duke.
    Mason Plumlee had 19 points to lead second-seeded Duke (27-5), which had the ball trailing by six points with about 2 minutes left after Seth Curry hit a rare 3-pointer and the Blue Devils got an even rarer defensive stop.
