After watching other teams knock off the top two seeds in Friday's ACC Quarterfinals, the Virginia women couldn't repeat the feat against Maryland.
The three-seed Terrapins -- ranked No. 6 in the country in the latest Associated Press poll -- used an early 14-0 run to pull away from Virginia, then went on to beat the Cavaliers 70-58.
The loss snapped a four-game Virginia winning streak. The Cavaliers fell to 22-10 overall on the season.
Senior guard Ariana Moorer had a game-high 19 points in the loss. Junior guard Lexie Gerson added 16 points.
The Terps are the highest-seeded team still standing in the ACC Tournament heading into Saturday's semifinals. Top-seed Duke lost to NC State 75-73 and Wake Forest beat two-seed Miami 81-74 in earlier quarterfinal games on Friday.
