GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - T.J. Warren scored 28 points while Ralston Turner banked in the go-ahead 3-pointer with 2:28 left to help North Carolina State upset No. 11 Syracuse 66-63 in Friday's quarterfinals at the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

The seventh-seeded Wolfpack (21-12) blew a 10-point second-half lead but came through with two clutch baskets late to hold off the Orange (27-5).

Warren followed Turner's tiebreaking 3 with a jumper to make it 64-61, then hit two free throws with 24.6 seconds left to keep the Wolfpack up three.

Syracuse had one wild final possession, missing six shots including four hurried 3-pointers from Tyler Ennis, Trevor Cooney and C.J. Fair to ensure its first trip to the ACC tournament would be a one-and-done stop.

It was a huge win for N.C. State's NCAA tournament hopes and allowed to avenge a loss to the Orange last month on a last-second basket.
