BOSTON (AP) - Dez Wells scored 18 of his career-high 33 points in the closing seven minutes to carry Maryland to an 88-80 win over Boston College Thursday night in the Terrapins' final league-opener as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Roddy Peters added 14 points, Jake Layman 13 and Nick Faust 11 for the Terrapins (6-4, 1-0 ACC).
Olivier Hanlan led Boston College (3-7, 0-1) with 26 points, Garland Owens had 16 and Ryan Anderson 14 with eight rebounds.
Anderson became the 40th player in school history to reach the 1,000-point mark when he nailed a jumper from the right corner, tying the game at 70 with 4:30 to go. But Layman and Wells scored consecutive driving baskets, pushing the Terrapins ahead for good.
