Wolfpack starts hot, finishes cold in 60-50 loss to Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. - This time, N.C. State wasted a big lead and couldn’t save itself.

Two days after losing a 17-point lead but escaping with a victory over Miami, the Wolfpack couldn’t hold a 19-point lead at Clemson, losing 60-50 to the Tigers Tuesday night in Littlejohn Coliseum.

What had started so well for the Wolfpack turned into a late meltdown as the Tigers scored 16 straight points in the closing minutes to hand N.C. State a potentially devastating loss.

It was the biggest Clemson comeback at home against an ACC opponent.

FSU smothers Wolfpack for 84-71 win

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Scott Wood did not mince words in describing N.C. State's 84-71 road loss to Florida State on Saturday.

The Seminoles, who upset No. 1 Duke three days earlier, were more aggressive, tougher and confident than the Wolfpack in a lopsided ACC contest.

Or, as Wood put it: "They beat the [heck] out of us and we just took it."

After a difficult road loss to Boston College on Tuesday, the Pack had no response against the Noles, especially on defense. FSU's normally plodding offense put up 56 points in the second half, and shot 69.2 percent in the process. All five FSU starters scored at least 11 points with a team-best 16 from forward Bernard James.

New-look Eagles top the Wolfpack 75-66

CHESNUT HILL, Mass. — Boston College changed coaches and styles since the last time N.C. State saw the Eagles last March. With a new reliance on the 3-point shot, the Eagles are different team and 3-0 in the ACC after a 75-66 home win over the Wolfpack on Tuesday night.

Corey Raji and Biko Paris hit consecutive 3-pointers to break a 60-60 tie with 4 minutes left in the game. The Eagles hit nine 3s for their third straight ACC win under first-year coach Steve Donahue.

State (11-5, 1-1 ACC) powered the ball inside to forward Tracy Smith for 18 points and got a second-half surge from freshman guard Ryan Harrow but it wasn't enough to match BC's outside shooting or high-scoring guard Reggie Jackson.

Jackson led all scorers with 29 points and added six assists and five rebounds in a sterling performance.

Wildcats start hot, down Wolfpack 72-62

RALEIGH -- If N.C. State is going to make the NCAA tournament this season, it will have to do so without a marquee win against a team from outside the ACC.

The last chance to notch a resume-building win came and went on Sunday with a 72-62 loss to Arizona. The Wildcats started the game hotter than the Tucson sun, then forced 14 turnovers and kept the Wolfpack at arms-length throughout the second half.

Terps shoot down Wolfpack's ACC hopes

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – On a cold, windy evening, Maryland redshirt quarterback Danny O’Brien and junior wide receiver Torrey Smith picked apart N.C. State’s defense and ended the Wolfpack’s hopes of playing in the ACC championship game.

O’Brien passed for 417 yards and five touchdowns, and Smith caught 14 passes for 224 yards with a school-record four touchdown receptions as the Terrapins defeated No. 21-ranked N.C. State 38-31 at Byrd Stadium.

N.C. State (8-4, 5-3 ACC) needed to win to secure a spot in the ACC championship game, and raced out to a 14-0, first-quarter lead with the wind at its back in the first quarter.

Wilson leads Pack to 38-3 win over Wake

RALEIGH - If Saturday was Russell Wilson’s last home game as N.C. State’s quarterback, he left Carter-Finley Stadium in style.

Wilson, a junior, was honored on senior day because he hasn’t announced whether he is returning for his senior season. Then he passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more in N.C. State’s 38-3 dismantling of Wake Forest.

Pack falls to Clemson in mistake-filled game

CLEMSON, S.C. -- N.C. State didn’t hold on to its favored spot in the ACC Atlantic Division for long.

In a game filled with mistakes by both teams, No. 23 N.C. State fell 14-13 to Clemson this afternoon at Memorial Stadium.

Wolfpack rallies to beat FSU 28-24

RALEIGH - Just when N.C. State’s hopes for a dramatic win seemed squashed, Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder unexpectedly brushed up against running back Ty Jones in the backfield.

It appeared that Ponder had a chance to throw for the winning touchdown on a tackle eligible play Thursday night. Instead, the contact in the backfield dislodged the ball.

N.C. State linebacker Nate Irving recovered the fumble at the Wolfpack 9-yard line with 48.3 seconds remaining. And N.C. State finished off its biggest win in years, a 28-24 decision over Florida State at Carter-Finley Stadium that put the Wolfpack squarely in the race for the ACC Atlantic Division championship.
