GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Freshman Scott Wood scored 18 points on six 3-pointers to help North Carolina State beat Florida State 58-52 on Friday night in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.
Tracy Smith added 13 points for the 11th-seeded Wolfpack (19-14), including a critical jumper to beat the shot clock with about a minute left that helped protect a slim lead. It was the second upset in as many nights for N.C. State, which has won five of six games and is back in the semifinals for the first time since its unexpected run to the finals three years ago.
N.C. State next faces seventh-seeded Georgia Tech, which upset Maryland earlier Friday.
Solomon Alabi scored 13 points for the third-seeded Seminoles (22-9), who never quite recovered after falling behind by nine midway through the second half.
