Wolfpack, Noles to Meet for Third Time on Friday

NC State, the ACC's #2 seed in the upcoming conference tournament, will meet the Florida State Seminoles in the first round Friday night at 7:00 P.M. at the Greensboro Coliseum.

NC State, the ACC's #2 seed in the upcoming conference tournament, will meet the Florida State Seminoles in the first round Friday night at 7:00 P.M. at the Greensboro Coliseum.

The Maryland Terrapins clinched the #6 seed in the tournament after Sunday's win over Virginia, sending the Cavaliers into Thursday night's play-in game against Clemson.

Because of Maryland's victory and FSU's tie-breaker advantage over Virginia, the Seminoles avoided the play-in game and face the Wolfpack in the first round.

NC State defeated Florida State in both meetings earlier this season, 58-53 in Tallahassee and 75-59 at the RBC Center in Raleigh.

Florida State's led by senior guard Tim Pickett, an ACC Player of the Year candidate who averaged 16.5 points in the regular season.

The winner of Friday night's NC State-Florida State game will face the Wake Forest-Maryland winner in the semifinals Saturday afternoon at 3:30 P.M.
