The North Carolina Tar Heels held off the Maryland Terrapins' many advances in today's second ACC tournament semifinal contest to win and advance to the finals.
North Carolina led by as many as 13 points in this game and had a double-digit lead in the second half, but Maryland had a chance to tie it on the last possession.
Unfortunately, Logan Aronhalt heaved up a desperation shot with 10 seconds left that was a horrible air ball, and North Carolina held the ball until the final buzzer sounded.
UNC will advance to play No. 9 Miami in the finals of the ACC tournament, whereas Maryland's future is now uncertain.
Even after its win over Duke in the quarterfinals, Maryland is on the outside looking in when it comes to the NCAA tournament, finding itself in Joe Lunardi's Next Four Out. Failing to beat UNC might have been the final nail in the coffin, and the Terps will likely play in the NIT as a No. 1 seed.
Final Score: North Carolina 79, Maryland 76
