ACC Tournament 2012: Boston College Defeated By N.C. State, 78-57

Scott Wood had his way early and often, scoring 22 points to lead the No. 5 seeded N.C. State Wolfpack past the No. 12 seeded Boston College Eagles, 78-57, in the opening round of the 2012 ACC Tournament on Thursday afternoon at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA.

Ryan Anderson's double-double of 22 points and 12 rebounds paced the Eagles, who were limited to 38.6 percent shooting. Lonnie Jackson added 10 points, Dennis Clifford scored six and Matt Humphrey finished with six points for Boston College. Patrick Heckmann, playing in his third game back from a bout with mono, had four points and seven rebounds.

Lorenzo Brown scored 12, C.J. Leslie had 11 points and 11 rebounds and DeShawn Painter had 10 points off the bench for the Wolfpack, who shot 43.3 percent. N.C. State out-rebounded BC, 39-31, and had 11 turnovers while BC had 19.

Unable to find any sense of rhythm, the Eagles missed their first seven shots and turned the ball over five times in the first 7:26 of the opening half, all while the Wolfpack scored 14 unanswered to open the game. Humphrey's layup at 12:34 was BC's first field goal, but BC could never recover from the poor start despite multiple chances to close the gap.

BC had the ball with a chance to trim the N.C. State lead to six or five points as the half closed, but a turnover from Jordan Daniels (eight points) led to a three-point play and another Eagles turnover allowed the Wolfpack to make a desperation three at the buzzer. BC was able to come within six points of N.C. State in the second half, but no closer.

Boston College finished the season at 9-22 overall and were last in the ACC.
