WAKE FOREST 86, #18 N.C. STATE 84 - Devin Thomas saved the first double-double of his career for the perfect time, scoring 25 points and grabbing 14 rebounds to lead Wake Forest to an upset of N.C. State at Lawrence Joel Coliseum on Tuesday evening.

The Wolfpack built a 12-point lead in the first half and led 47-35 going into the locker room, but the Demon Deacons dominated the second half. Two separate runs in the second half, one 9-2 and the other 12-4, powered the Deacs into the lead at the 9:55 mark.

N.C. State made a late run, cutting the lead to a point with one minute remaining, but the Wolfpack missed five of its last six shots, and a pair of free throws by Travis McKie with four seconds remaining sealed the victory for Wake Forest.

McKie (16), Codi Miller-McIntyre (15) and C.J. Harris (10) all joined him in double figures. Arnaud William Adala Moto fell just short of a double-double with nine points and 10 rebounds. Thomas had a true stat-stuffing night, adding four assists, four blocks and three steals to his 25 points and 14 boards.

MARYLAND 64, BOSTON COLLEGE 59 -  Alex Len had 16 points and 13 rebounds, Jake Layman scored 15 and Maryland squeezed past Boston College on Tuesday night.

Maryland (15-4, 3-3 ACC) improved to 13-1 at home despite committing 14 turnovers and shooting only 42 percent. It was the Terrapins' second win in five games after a 13-1 start. 

Ryan Anderson scored 19 and Oliver Hanlan had 18 for the Eagles (9-9, 1-4). Boston College has lost four of five, with those defeats coming by a total of 14 points.

During a tight second half, neither team led by more than three points until Layman made a 3-pointer to put Maryland up 48-43 with 9:12 to go, part of a 12-1 run that turned a 43-40 deficit into a 52-44 advantage.
