'Canes Survive NC State Rally to Advance to ACC Semifinal

No one said it would ever be easy. It rarely is on this stage.

The 10th-ranked and second-seeded University of Miami women’s basketball team survived a close scare from 10th-seeded NC State in a highly-contested 93-85 win Friday night in quarterfinal action at the 2011 Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum. 

Miami (27-3) will now face the winner of Friday’s late game between No. 3 seed Florida State and No. 6 seed North Carolina in Saturday’s semifinal round.
