Scott Wood scored 31 points to lead North Carolina State to an 88-81 upset of No. 25 Florida State on Tuesday night handing the Seminoles their second loss in three days. The Tribe now falls to 1-2 in conference play and are working their way back onto the bubble.
The Wolfpack hit 11 of 23 3-pointers with Wood draining 7 of his 11 attempts from downtown.
"Even a couple shots I took I thought 'why am I shooting this?' And they just went in. I'm just like 'alright, just keep puttin' it up there,' " he said. "Once you have that confidence you feel you can hit anything."
N.C. State went on an early 16-1 run to take a 23-12 lead as Florida State once again had serious offensive struggles. This time, their defense wouldn't come through as it had in previous games giving them a chance to come back.
"We had no answer," Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said.
"It was almost like he was a one-man wrecking crew," Hamilton said. "He hurt us in a lot of ways. He hit some really tough shots when we defended him very well."
Florida State won't have much time to dwell over the loss as they must prepare for another home ACC game this Saturday when Virginia Tech comes to town to take on the Seminoles. Tip-off is set for 6:00 pm and will air live on Sun Sports.
