WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Ishmael Smith's running jumper with 19.8 seconds left in overtime lifted Wake Forest past Maryland 85-83 on Tuesday night.
Al-Farouq Aminu had 24 points, 13 rebounds and a key defensive play on Maryland's last-gasp inbounds play to lead the Demon Deacons (12-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Greivis Vasquez had a season-high 30 points to lead Maryland (10-5, 1-1). The Terrapins went nearly 4 minutes between field goals in the extra session before Jordan Williams' stickback tied it at 83 with 52 seconds left.
Smith drove down the lane and lofted a one-hander over Eric Hayes to put Wake Forest up by two. Maryland hustled downcourt and called timeout with 14.8 seconds left, and Vasquez's 3 over Smith bounced off the iron with about 10 seconds.
The rebound trickled out to Sean Mosley and he missed a 3 with about 3 seconds left.
