Tech fell to 4-7 in conference play and 9-12 overall headed into this week’s ACC Championship in Cary, N.C., where the 8th seeded Yellow Jackets will face No. 9 Maryland (7-14, 4-7) at 9 a.m. Thursday. The Demon Deacons improved to 12-14 overall and 3-8 in ACC matches.

Wake Forest rallied to win the doubles point after Miljevic and freshman Eduardo Segura won at No. 3, capturing tiebreakers to take victories at No. 1 and 2.

But Tech took the lead 2-1 when freshmen Eduardo Segura and Vikram Hundal won at the bottom of the singles lineup. Segura took a 6-3, 6-3 win over Sam Wells at No. 6, and Hundal defeated Alex Tsai, 6-1, 2-6, 7-6 at No. 5.
