Tournament Tweeting: ACC Opening Round Recap and Second Round Preview

Opening Round Recap

#12 NC State 75, #13 Wake Forest 72
The Wake Forest-NC State tournament opener was an entertaining, back-and-forth game, and came down to the closing seconds with NC State winning 75-72, led by freshman Maverick Rowan with 24 points, and first team All-ACC guard Cat Barber with 22.  For Wake Forest, Devin Thomas had a double-double of 12 points and 13 rebounds, and Codi Miller-McIntyre scored 14 points while dishing five assists; the loss marks the final collegiate game for both seniors.

 

#11 Florida State 88, #14 Boston College 66
Boston College finished off a historically bad year for their revenue sports, completing a winless stretch in ACC conference play (0-19 including the ACC Tournament) following their 0-8 record in the ACC in football.  Florida State dominated the Eagles, despite 21 points from Boston College senior Eli Carter, with Devon Bookert leading the Seminoles off the bench with 15 points.
