Jaron Blossomgame scored 16 points, including a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 1:27 to go as Clemson went on to beat the Wolfpack 78-74.
Abu led NC State with 18 points, Smith and Henderson chipped in 13 and Rowan dropped 12, but it wasn’t enough. The Wolfpack limps into the ACC Tournament on Tuesday as either a 13 or 14 seed.
To make matters worse Markell Johnson was carted off with a knee injury. We should know more on Friday as his MRI results should be released.
