BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Maryland guard Dez Wells scored 19 points to lead the Terrapins to an 80-60 victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday.

Wells came off the bench as punishment for being late to a team breakfast. It marked just the second time since he enrolled at Maryland in 2012 that he did not start. He entered the game in the first minute of play and went on to make 6 of 9 from the floor. Maryland (13-9, 5-4 ACC) shot 51.8 percent (29 of 56), won its second in a row and beat the Hokies for the fourth-straight time.

Virginia Tech (8-13, 1-8) stayed with the Terrapins until the final minute of the first half. The Hokies trailed 37-35 after Will Johnston hit a 3-pointer with 1:31 left in the half. But Maryland got 3-pointers on its final two possessions - from Seth Allen and Jake Layman - to take a 43-35 lead at halftime.

Ben Emelogu opened the second half with a 3-pointer for the Hokies to cut the Maryland lead to 43-38. But the Terrapins answered with a 14-2 run to grab a 17-point lead and take control.

Wells scored four points in the run, including a one-handed dunk that prompted a Virginia Tech timeout with 16:06 remaining. Nick Faust's 3-pointer capped the run and gave the Terrapins a 57-40 lead with 14:51 to go.

The Terrapins went on to lead by as many as 23, and the Hokies never got closer than 14 the rest of the game.

Allen added 16 points for the Terrapins, and Layman and Faust had 10 each.

Emelogu paced Virginia Tech with 21 points. The Hokies, who shot just 37 percent (20 of 54) lost their eighth-straight game. They have lost their last three by at least 20 points.
