GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Scott Wood had 23 points and seven 3-pointers to help North Carolina State beat Virginia 75-56 on Friday in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament quarterfinals.

C.J. Leslie added 17 points and 11 rebounds with three blocks for the fifth-seeded Wolfpack (24-9), who blew the game open after halftime and led by double digits nearly the entire second half for a second straight quarterfinal win against the fourth-seeded Cavaliers (21-11).

N.C. State also got strong performances from freshman T.J. Warren with 18 points and senior Richard Howell, who battled through a right thigh injury to finish with 12 rebounds.

The Wolfpack avenged a regular-season loss to Virginia that started a three-game skid, which all but took the preseason ACC favorite out of the regular-season title chase. Now N.C. State is back in the semifinals and has a Saturday matchup with No. 9 Miami, the tournament's top seed.
