RALEIGH, N.C. -- Dennis Horner scored 11 of his 14 points during the decisive second-half run to help North Carolina State rally past Boston College 66-54 on Sunday.
Tracy Smith scored 19 points to lead the Wolfpack (17-14, 5-11 Atlantic Coast Conference), who used a 19-5 run to rally from a four-point deficit in the final 7 minutes. With the win, NC State closes the regular season with three wins in four games heading into next week's ACC tournament in Greensboro.
Horner, a senior in his final home game, took a hard foul from BC's Josh Southern on a dunk attempt and hit the court, opening a cut above his right eye with 18:13 left. He headed to the locker room, but returned with 10:55 left to ignite the decisive run.
