NC State Beats Ga Tech 80-78 On Warren's OT Jumper

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - T.J. Warren's running jumper with 6.2 seconds left in overtime lifted North Carolina State past Georgia Tech 80-78 on Sunday.

Warren, the ACC's leading scorer, finished with 20 points in his first game back from an ankle injury.

The Wolfpack (13-7, 3-4) trailed by 11 with under 16 minutes to play before rallying for their second straight win.

Daniel Miller scored a career-high 21 points for Georgia Tech (11-9, 2-5).

The Yellow Jackets had one last chance after Ralston Turner missed two free throws with 2.5 seconds remaining.

Miller heaved his inbounds pass to Kameron Holsey and he flipped the ball to Chris Bolden - whose 30-footer from the wing was on line but bounced off the back iron.

Turner finished with 12 points, Desmond Lee 11 and Tyler Lewis scored all 10 of his in the second half for N.C. State.

Trae Golden finished with 18 points for Tech.
