N.C. State moves to Friday's quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament after a strong victory in the opening round.
The Wolfpack took down Virginia Tech Thursday afternoon, 80-63. N.C. State took control after going on an 11-0 run in the second half. Coach Mark Gottfried says guard Lorenzo Brown shut down Virginia Tech's Erick Green, the leading scorer in the nation.
"Lorenzo made his mind up he was going to do a good job on him and I thought he did," Gottfried said.
