North Carolina State's Desmond Lee scores on a last-second putback to force overtime vs. Georgia Tech. The Wolfpack beat the Yellow Jackets on Sunday.

Warren, the ACC’s leading scorer, finished with 20 points in his first game back from an ankle injury.

The Wolfpack (13-7, 3-4) trailed by 11 with under 16 minutes to play before rallying for their second consecutive win.

Daniel Miller scored a career-high 21 points for Georgia Tech (11-9, 2-5).

The Yellow Jackets had one last chance after Ralston Turner missed two free throws with 2.5 seconds remaining.

Miller heaved his inbounds pass to Kameron Holsey and he flipped the ball to Chris Bolden – whose 30-footer from the wing was on line but bounced off the back iron.

In Tucson, Ariz., Nick Johnson scored 22 points and Aaron Gordon provided a huge boost despite a rough shooting night, helping top-ranked Arizona pull away from Utah (14-6, 3-5 Pac 12) for its school-record 20th consecutive win.

Arizona (20-0, 7-0 Pac-12) struggled early in both halves before Gordon made key plays with his hustle during a deciding second-half run. He finished with 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting and grabbed 12 rebounds.

The Wildcats had 20 offensive rebounds that led to 19 second-chance points.

In Philadelphia, Sean Kilpatrick scored a season-high 29 points and Cincinnati (19-2, 8-0 American Athletic Conference) staved off a Temple comeback to remain undefeated in conference play.
