RALEIGH, N.C. -- Scott Wood scored 22 points to lead North Carolina State back from two seven-point deficits in a 90-86 overtime win over Virginia Tech Saturday afternoon at PNC Arena.
C.J. Leslie scored 16 points and Lorenzo Brown added 15 for the Wolfpack (18-7, 7-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). Six N.C. State players scored in double figures.
Erick Green, the nation's leading scorer, led the Hokies (11-14, 2-10) with 29 points, the 23rd time this season he has scored at least 20. Virginia Tech lost its eighth straight game.
Jarell Eddie added 17 for the Hokies, while freshman Marshall Wood had 10 points and a career-best 16 rebounds.
The Hokies rallied improbably in the final minute, coming from six points down in the final 33.2 seconds to tie the game and send it to overtime.
Jarell Eddie hit a 3-pointer with nine seconds left to cut the lead to 77-75. Wood hit one of two free throws with 8.1 seconds left to push the lead back to three. The Wolfpack fouled Green, who hit his first free throw but missed the second. Eddie scooped the rebound and scored with four seconds left to tie it at 78-78.
Brown had a chance to win it for State but missed a jumper at the buzzer.
The Hokies led 84-83 with 1:44 left in overtime after Eddie's 3-pointer. But the Wolfpack scored the next six points -- all at the foul line -- to take an 89-84 lead.
The game seemed to take a turn in the Hokies' favor midway through the second half when Leslie was called for a technical foul after barking at an official for a perceived non-call. Green hit both free throws and buried a jumper on the next possession, giving Virginia Tech a 60-53 lead with 7:50 left.
N.C. State erased the deficit in fewer than two minutes. Warren knocked down a pair of free throws, Richard Howell hit a basket and Wood drained a 3-pointer while being fouled. Wood hit the free throw, giving N.C. State a 61-60 lead with 6:03 left.
The 14-0 run continued over the next few minutes, finally ending when Will Johnston hit a 3-pointer with 3:26 remaining to cut N.C. State's lead to 67-63.
NOTES: Johnston made his second straight start in place of the slumping Eddie. ... N.C. State's Brown made his first start since injuring his ankle on Jan. 28 at Virginia. Brown came off the bench last Sunday at Clemson. ... Virginia Tech, which led 36-34 at the break, has lost its last four games in which it held a halftime lead.
