Rion Brown netted 22 points to pace the 10th-seeded Hurricanes (17-16).

NC State opened the game on a 10-2 run, but Miami responded with a 10-3 run of its own to keep things close midway through the first half. The Wolfpack would lead by no more than five points the rest of the period, entering the break with a 26-22 advantage.
