ACC rivalry games have certainly not let us down this year. Tonight’s UNC-NC State game had one of the stranger finishes you’ll see this year. After an off-ball foul allowed TJ Warren to knock down two free throws to tie the game and send it to overtime with just 1.6 seconds left, the momentum seemed to be all-NC State. The Wolfpack jumped out to a quick 77-71 lead in overtime, but UNC battled back, and guard Marcus Paige, who finished with an eye-popping 35 points, hit a game winning layup with 0.9 seconds left on the clock to shock the ‘Pack.
UNC survives, pushing its winning streak to ten games.
Take a seat Roy. You deserve it.
