RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina State waited until after it had blown a big lead and survived a shot at the regulation horn to put together its best stretch of basketball Wednesday night.
The Wolfpack scored the first seven points of overtime to retake control in an 89-80 win against Boston College, earning a tougher-than-it-should've-been win considering N.C. State led by 14 points midway through the second half.
"I told our guys that going into every game from this point on, we've got a small margin for error," Wolfpack coach Kevin Keatts said. "I felt like that every game could possibly come down to the last second. ... Give our guys credit, we fought our way through."
