The Terrapins, 16-11, ride a two-game winning streak. Maryland won at NC State (70-69) last Wednesday, then beat rival Virginia (70-61) Sunday night.
Wake Forest and Maryland play the final of four quarterfinal games on Friday. No. 1 seed Duke plays the Clemson/Virginia winner at noon, followed by No. 4 Georgia Tech against No. 5 North Carolina, and No. 2 NC State versus No. 7 Florida State.
The last time Wake Forest met Maryland in the ACC Tournament came in the quarterfinals of the 2001 tournament in Atlanta. The No. 3 seed Terrapins whipped the No. 6 seed Demon Deacons, 71-53. Maryland went on to go to the Final Four that season.
Maryland leads the all-time series, 56-53. The Deacons swept the regular season series with Maryland for the first time since 1997-98.
The winner of the Wake Forest-Maryland game advances to Saturday's semifinal against the winner of the NC State-Florida State game. Wake has advanced to the semifinals in each of the two previous tournaments.
