SUNDAY NIGHT HOOP

No.4 NORTH CAROLINA 0, No. 3 DUKE 0

No. 6 WAKE FOREST 93, BOSTON COLLEGE 76

MARYLAND 57, GEORGIA TECH 56

VIRGINIA TECH 91, N.C. STATE 87 OT

HOKIES FINALLY BEAT STATE: A.D. Vassallo drained four free throws in the final 16.4 seconds of overtime to seal Virginia Tech's 91-87 win over North Carolina State on Sunday.

The Hokies (15-7, 5-3 ACC) rallied from a late 18-point deficit in the win, which put an end to their six-game losing streak against the Wolfpack (12-9, 2-6).

WAKE WAKES UP: Jeff Teague scored 27 points, freshman Al-Farouq Aminu added a season-high 26 and Wake Forest bounced back with a win voer Boston College.

James Johnson had 12 points and 10 rebounds while L.D. Williams added 11 points for the Demon Deacons (18-3, 5-3 ACC).

Joe Trapani had 19 points to lead Boston College (18-7, 6-4), but just four of those came after halftime, when Dino Gaudio put Williams -- his top lock-down defender -- on him. Tyrese Rice added 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting and Corey Raji had 14. Josh Southern added 12 points for BC, which had its five-game winning streak snapped.

TERPS HANG ON: Greivis Vasquez scored 19 points and Maryland held off Georgia Tech at the buzzer for its eighth straight victory over the Yellow Jackets.

Georgia Tech had two chances at the win after Eric Hayes missed the first free throw of a 1-and-1 with 16.7 seconds left. Georgia Tech's Lewis Clinch missed on a drive in the lane, but teammate Iman Shumpert chased down the long rebound in the corner and managed to get off a 3-pointer. It missed.
Game over.

Maryland (15-8, 4-5 ACC) swept the season series and extended its domination of the Yellow Jackets (10-12, 1-8), who haven't beaten the Terrapins since the 2003-04 season. Georgia Tech didn’t help themselves committing 24 turnovers.
Shumpert scored 13 points for the Yellow Jackets, while Hayes added 15 points for Maryland.
