Recap: Clemson vs. NC State

Clemson, SC (Sports Network) - Scott Wood knocked down the game-winning 3- pointer with one second remaining as the NC State Wolfpack captured the thrilling 58-57 win over the Clemson Tigers in ACC play at Littlejohn Coliseum.

Wood finished the contest 3-of-9 beyond the arc, resulting in nine points for the Wolfpack (17-7, 6-5 ACC) as they snapped a three-game slide. Richard Howell filled out his stat line with 16 points, 11 rebounds, four steals and three assists, while C.J. Leslie logged a double-double of his own with 12 points and 10 boards. Off the bench, Lorenzo Brown registered 15 points and four of the unit's eight dishes.

The Tigers (12-11, 4-7) were paced by Jordan Roper with a game-high 17 points, followed by K.J. McDaniels and Devin Booker with 12 and 10 points, respectively, in the team's third consecutive setback.

NC State led by three points in the first few moments of the contest, but the team ended up shooting only 34.5 percent from the floor in the first half, leading to a 32-26 deficit at the break.

In the second half Clemson stumbled with only nine made field goals, opening the door for the Wolfpack to set up Wood for what became the game-winning basket from the right wing. The Tigers did have one last shot to grab the win, but a heave from half-court missed the mark.

Clemson held the visitors to just 37.7 percent shooting from the field, but at the same time the Tigers hurt themselves with 17 turnovers.
