Wood Leads NC State Past Miami 78-73

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Scott Wood scored 21 points to lead North Carolina State to a 78-73 victory over Miami on Sunday.

The Wolfpack led 55-41 midway through the second half and withstood a late Miami rally. Kenny Kadji's dunk with 1:44 remaining got the Hurricanes to within 72-68.

N.C. State (15-5, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) responded with five unanswered points, capped by Wood's two free throws with 18 seconds left.

Earlier in the game, Wood set the ACC all-time consecutive free-throw record of 56 when he made three free throws after being fouled on an attempted 3-pointer with 5:21 remaining. He increased the mark to 58 by game's end. Duke's J.J. Redick set the previous record of 54 in 2003-04.

DeShawn Painter finished with 18 points for the Wolfpack.

Kadji led the Hurricanes (10-7, 1-3) with 20 points.

        I wouldn't go that far, but there is definitely a better chance at us winning this year than there has been in years past. I'd be satisfied with a winning conference record and a shot at the tournament, myself.
