Greensboro, NC (Sports Network) - Iman Shumpert scored 14 points and handed out four assists to help Georgia Tech fend off 19th-ranked Maryland, 69-64, in the quarterfinals of the 2010 ACC Tournament at Greensboro Coliseum.

The Yellow Jackets led by as many as 19 late in the first half, but Maryland clamped down defensively to whittle the deficit to one. The Terrapins forced 25 turnovers, 16 after the break, but could never pull in front.

Maurice Miller had 13 points, while Derrick Favors added 11 points and 11 rebounds for seventh-seeded Georgia Tech (21-11), which will meet either Florida State or NC State in the semifinals on Saturday.

Zachery Peacock also scored 11 points for the Yellow Jackets, who connected on 8-of-12 shots from beyond the arc.

Greivis Vasquez, ACC Player of the Year, finished with 17 points and five steals for the second-seeded Terrapins (23-8), who earned a share of the conference's regular-season crown with Duke.

Landon Milbourne totaled 15 points, six rebounds and five steals in the loss for Maryland.
