Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- T.J. Warren, the Atlantic Coast
Conference's leading scorer, had 30 points and grabbed seven
rebounds to lead North Carolina State over Florida State 74-70
on Wednesday.

The Wolfpack (14-7, 4-4 ACC) held on at the end after Warren
fouled out with 1:36 remaining and his team holding a 72-68
lead. Florida State's Okaro White made two of four free throws
but N.C. State got a tip in by Desmond Lee (11 points, and five
of the Pack's final seven) with 12.1 seconds left to preserve
its third straight win.

White led Florida State (13-7, 4-4) with 20 points, Ian Miller
added 17 and Aaron Thomas chipped in 12. The Seminoles shot 43
percent, 7 of 19 from beyond the arc.

N.C. State led 39-33 at the break behind Warren's hot hand. He
scored 15 of N.C. State's first 24 points and the Wolfpack led
by as many as seven. Warren ended up with 20 points before

The Wolfpack maintained their lead for the first 9 minutes of
the second half, pushing it to as much as eight at 44-36 on a
Lee drive, despite losing the services of 7-1 center Jordan
Vandenberg, who picked up his third foul just 1:30 into the
second half.

Florida State started taking advantage of its size, driving the
ball inside to White. However, it was a 3-pointer by Miller that
gave Florida State its first lead, 56-54, with 10:27 remaining.

Guard Tyler Lewis and forward Kyle Washington hit jumpers to put
the Wolfpack up by two at 61-59. However, Warren picked up his
fourth foul with 6:58 remaining and went to the bench with his
team trailing 62-61.

Vandenberg replaced Warren and buried two dunks, the second
coming after Lee's three-point play, as N.C. State led 72-67
with 3:15 left.

Florida State used its size advantage in the first half,
especially with Vandenberg out with foul trouble and backup
Beejay Anya sent to the sideline with an apparent right leg
injury with 13:39 left in the half. White scored five points
and helped the Seminoles pull into a 28-28 tie with about 4
minutes left in the half.

The Wolfpack's smaller lineup, with 5-11 Lewis running the
point, went on an 11-5 run to close out the half, capped by
Warren's 3-pointer with 2 seconds left. N.C. State outscored the
Seminoles in the paint 22-14 in the half despite Florida State's
height advantage.

The upper deck of the 19,772 PNC Arena was completely curtained
off. Both universities cancelled classes on Wednesday due to the
winter storm that went through the southeast.
