NC State Moves Up to 5th in the ACC Standings After Victory Over Tigers

For the first time since 2015, NC State defeated Clemson on the road this evening, beating the Tigers 78-77 in dramatic fashion. The Wolfpack entered the contest with an 0-6 record in Quad 1 games, but the win over Clemson tonight gives NC State their first Quad 1 win of the season.

The Wolfpack trailed by 1 with 25 seconds left. With 10 seconds left on the shot clock, NC State head coach Kevin Keatts didn’t like what he was seeing, and called timeout, drawing up a play to get DJ Horne the ball. The timeout accomplished its task, with Horne hitting the game winner with 9 seconds left on the clock.
