WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Codi Miller-McIntyre hit a running shot while being fouled with 4.9 seconds left to help Wake Forest beat North Carolina State 70-69 on Wednesday night.
Miller-McIntyre scored 20 points, the last coming when he raced downcourt on an inbounds play to hit a leaning shot while being bumped by Ralston Turner. Miller-McIntyre missed the free throw, but N.C. State's Anthony "Cat" Barber wasn't close on a desperation shot at the buzzer.
It was a big win for the Demon Deacons (12-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who had lost two straight since their upset of North Carolina here Jan. 5.
Devin Thomas added 16 points for Wake Forest, which made 28 of 39 free throws (72 percent) in an uncharacteristically steady performance at the foul line for one of the nation's worst free-throw shooting teams.
T.J. Warren scored 22 points for the Wolfpack (11-6, 1-3) before fouling out with 2:47 left.
