  • Text size: + -

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Dez Wells scored 23 points and Maryland pulled away to beat Wake Forest 67-57 on Saturday and spoil Chris Paul Day.

The Raleigh native was 11 of 12 from the field and finished two points shy of his career high of 25 set Dec. 2 against George Mason.

The Terrapins (20-9, 8-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) overcame 19 turnovers and some serious foul trouble to hold the Demon Deacons (12-16, 5-11) without a field goal for the final 4{ minutes and claim their second ACC road win of the season.

C.J. Harris scored 19 points and Devin Thomas added 17 for Wake Forest, which had the ball down 61-57 with 2 minutes left but couldn't get any closer.
