GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) T.J. Warren scored 24 points to help North Carolina State beat Miami 67-58 in Thursday night's second round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Ralston Turner added 16 of his 22 points after halftime for the seventh-seeded Wolfpack (20-12), who trailed 53-51 with about 4 minutes left before going on a 12-0 run that kept Mark Gottfried's team alive in the tournament.

Turner came up big during that spurt. Warren hit a turnaround for the lead at the 2:23 mark, then Turner knocked down a tough 3-pointer over Rion Brown that gave the Wolfpack a 58-53 lead with 1:42 to go.

Des Lee's breakaway dunk ended the run and gave N.C. State a 63-53 lead with 26.3 seconds left, part of a 16-5 flurry to close the game against the 10th-seeded Hurricanes (17-16).

N.C. State advanced to Friday's quarterfinals to play No. 11 Syracuse, the tournament's third seed.
