2014 ACC Tournament: N.C State shocks Syracuse behind T.J. Warren's 28 to advance 66-63

After a season of near dominance in their first year as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Syracuse Orange’s stay in the ACC Tournament was short-lived, as Jim Boeheim and company were ousted from the event on Friday night at the hands of the N.C. State Wolfpack, 66-63.

Down the stretch, Syracuse had the chance to tie it up, but missed multiple three-point shot attempts to keep their hopes alive, and now will have more, unwanted time to get ready for the NCAA Tournament.

In this one, the ACC Player of the Year, T.J. Warren, turned in an amazing performance, dropping in 28 points and adding in eight rebounds in helping his team to the monumental upset of the group once considered the unquestioned best in the nation.

Right about now, the rest of the teams that are guaranteed to be in the NCAA Tournament are mighty afraid to see Warren and this crew at any point coming up this month.
