    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.

    Rakim Sanders and Tyler Roche each scored 11 for the Eagles (15-15, 6-10), who led 47-43 on a three-point play from Reggie Jackson with 7:11 left.

    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.
