Maryland to play either Wake Forest or Virginia Tech

March 09, 2013|By Jeff Barker | The Baltimore Sun

Maryland will be the No. 7 seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and will begin play Thursday at 7p.m. in Greensboro, N.C.

The Terps will play against the No. 10 seed -- either Wake Forest or Virginia Tech. Those teams play Sunday afternoon, and the winner will get the 10th slot.

Florida State clinched the sixth seed Saturday afternoon with a win over N.C. State.

If Maryland advances, it will meet second-seeded Duke on Friday night at 7. Duke has a first-round bye.

Maryland swept both Virginia Tech and Wake Forest this season.

The Terps split with Duke, losing by 20 on the road and winning by two points on Feb. 16 at Comcast Center.

But the Blue Devils were without senior forward Ryan Kelly in those games. Kelly has scored 36 and 18 points, respectively, in two games since returning from a foot injury.
