TUESDAY NIGHT HOOP

N.C. STATE 88, NO. 25 FLORIDA STATE 81 – It’s early in the year for the full-blown wheelectomy, but not-ranked-for-long Florida State better start looking for the lug wrench after their second straight loss.

Scott Wood (pictured) scored a career-high 31 points to lead North Carolina State to an upset of No. 25 Florida State on Tuesday night, spoiling the ACC home opener for the Noles.

The Wolfpack (12-5, 1-2 ACC) hit 11 of 23 three-pointers with Wood connecting on 7 of 11 attempts from behind the arc. Farnold Degand added 13 points and Julius Mays 12, including 10 straight free throws for the winners.

N.C. State rode an early 16-1 run to take a 23-12 lead as Florida State went 6:33 between field goals. The Wolfpack never trailed afterward, building their largest lead at 48-35 on a Dennis Horner 3-point shot early in the second half.

Chris Singleton scored 15 of his career-high 22 points in the second half to lead Florida State (13-4 1-2) which lost its second league game in three days.

Solomon Alabi and Derwin Kitchen added 15 points each for the Seminoles while Ryan Reid and freshman Michael Snaer had 12 apiece.

WAKE FOREST 85, MARYLAND 83 – Ishmail running jumper with 19.8 seconds left in overtime lifted Wake Forest past Maryland on Tuesday night.

Al-Farouq Aminu had 24 points, 13 rebounds and a key defensive play on the Terp's last-gasp inbounds play to lead the Demon Deacons (12-3, 2-1 ACC).

Greivis Vasquez had a season-high 30 points to lead Maryland (10-5, 1-1). The Terrapins went nearly 4 minutes between field goals in the extra session before Jordan Williams' put-back tied it at 83 with 52 seconds left.

Gary “Speed Stick” Williams yelled a lot, but was actually pleased with his squad’s effort short of a couple plays in overtime.
