Recap: NC State vs. Virginia Tech

Greensboro, NC (Sports Network) - Richard Howell donated a double-double with 22 points and 12 rebounds, as North Carolina State cruised past Virginia Tech, 80-63, on Thursday in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament at Greensboro Coliseum.

C.J. Leslie followed with 15 points, while Scott Wood and T.J. Warren tallied 13 points apiece for the fifth-seeded Wolfpack (23-9), who will take on fourth-seeded Virginia in a quarterfinal matchup on Friday.

ACC Player of the Year Erick Green managed just 15 points on 5-of-19 shooting in his final collegiate game, while Jarell Eddie paced the Hokies (13-19) with 21 points in the setback, Virginia Tech's third in a row.

The teams exchanged buckets for much of the first half until a Warren jumper sparked a 10-2 NC State run to give the Wolfpack a 34-27 lead with 3:21 left.

NC State carried a 38-32 cushion into the break and with the margin back at six, 48-42, just over five minutes into the second, Warren buried a 3-pointer to send the Wolfpack on an 11-0 sprint to make it 59-42 with 12 minutes to play.

The Hokies never recovered, as NC State led by double digits the rest of the way.
