PACK UPSETS CANES

Upset? Well, knowing how hard it is to win any road game in the ACC, maybe it's not an upset, but if we asked who's better N.C. State or Miami? You'd say Miami, yes?

Not so fast, after an opening emotional tribute to Kay Yow, N.C. State freshman Julius Mays buried a straightaway 3-pointer with 2.6 seconds left in overtime to knock off the Hurricanes. It was Miami's second straight conference loss.

Courtney Fells had 24 points to lead the Wolfpack (11-7, 2-4 ACC) squandered a 19-point lead early in the second half and a pair of leads late in regulation and the extra period. Brandon Costner added 21 points and Ben McCauley had 12.

Mays finished with six points, but the backup point guard came up with the game's biggest play. With the clock winding down in a tie game, Mays pulled up over Brian Asbury and launched a 3-pointer that looked desperate.

As usual, Miami (14-6, 3-4) was led by Jack McClinton who scored 27 points.
