Balanced UNC Blows Out Maryland 85-69 In ACC

ATLANTA (AP) -- North Carolina shook off an injury to John Henson and pulled away from Maryland in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, winning 85-69 Friday behind Kendall Marshall and contributions from everyone else.

Reggie Bullock hit back-to-back 3-pointers to start the second half, quickly extending a 10-point halftime lead to 42-26. Behind 30 points from Terrell Stoglin, the Terrapins sliced the deficit down to seven points a couple of times before the fourth-ranked Tar Heels pulled away again.

North Carolina (28-4) had too many weapons for Maryland (17-15).

Marshall scored 13 points and doled out 12 assists. Bullock and Harrison Barnes scored 15 points apiece. Tyler Zeller and James McAdoo chipped in with 14 each.

North Carolina faces either North Carolina State or Virginia in the semifinals Saturday.
