RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Scott Wood hit a pair of 3-pointers during a 17-5 run late in the game Wednesday that pushed No. 21 North Carolina State to an 83-70 win over Georgia Tech.

The contest was tied with 8 minutes remaining, but Wood started the run with a 3-point shot and the Wolfpack went on to win their ninth in a row.
