  • Wake's Lakevia Boykin gets a hug from teammate Mykala Walker (13) after the upset of Miami.

The night session of Day 2 of the ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament was just about as crazy as the afternoon — at least in one of the games.

Wake Forest got the biggest win in the history of the program in the 6 p.m. contest, shocking No. 7 Miami 81-74 to beat a Top 10 team for just the second time ever and the first time since 1993.

Wake (19-12), which had never won two games in any ACC women’s tournament until this year, is in the semifinals for the first time since 1988.

Secily Ray’s season-high 21 points led the Deacons, who got 18 points from Chelsea Douglas, 16 from Southeast Raleigh alumna Lakevia Boykin and 14 with 10 rebounds from Sandra Garcia.

Wake will play new tournament favorite Maryland (26-4), which beat Virginia 70-58 in the late game, on Saturday at 1:30. That will follow the 11 a.m. game between Georgia Tech (23-7) and N.C. State (18-14), part of the first semifinal doubleheader not including either Duke or UNC since 1991.
