Wood Scores 22, NC State Beats BC 78-57 In ACC

ATLANTA (AP) -- Scott Wood made five 3-pointers and finished with 22 points, leading North Carolina State past Boston College 78-57 in the opening round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Thursday.

N.C. State (21-11) raced to a 14-0 lead, turned back several runs by the Eagles (9-22), then pulled away in the closing minutes for a must-win in its bid to make the NCAA tournament.

Wood swished a couple of huge 3s, turning back any hopes of a Boston College comeback. He finished 5-of-9 beyond the arc, sending the Wolfpack into the quarterfinals Friday against Virginia.

Boston College finished with the most losses in school history, eclipsing the dubious mark set by the 1988-89 team that went 6-21.

Ryan Anderson led the Eagles with 22 points.
