Codi Miller-McIntyre hit a running shot while being fouled with 4.9 seconds left to help Wake Forest beat North Carolina State 70-69 on Wednesday night.

Miller-McIntyre scored 20 points, the last coming when he raced downcourt on an inbounds play to hit a leaning shot while being bumped by Ralston Turner. Miller-McIntyre missed the free throw, but N.C. State's Anthony ''Cat'' Barber wasn't close on a desperation shot at the buzzer.

It was a big win for the Demon Deacons (12-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who had lost two straight since their upset of North Carolina here Jan. 5.

Devin Thomas added 16 points for Wake Forest, which made 28 of 39 free throws (72 percent) in an uncharacteristically steady performance at the foul line for one of the nation's worst free-throw shooting teams.

T.J. Warren scored 22 points for the Wolfpack (11-6, 1-3) before fouling out with 2:47 left.

This was a painful loss for the Wolfpack, who were in position to ruin Wake Forest's perfect home record when Desmond Lee knocked down two free throws with 10.5 seconds left for a 69-68 lead. N.C. State dominated the offensive glass and took a 23-4 edge in second-chance points, with most of that damage coming before halftime, but came up empty in Winston-Salem for the second straight season.

The foul trouble added up for N.C. State, with Warren, Kyle Washington and Jordan Vandenberg all racking up four fouls by the 10-minute mark of the second half. In addition, backup guard Tyler Lewis didn't play in the second half due to flu-like symptoms, an illness he had been battling coming into the game.

Wake Forest shot 54 percent for the game, with Arnaud William Adala Moto turning in 15 points and a career-high 11 rebounds off the bench.

When this one was over, Wake Forest students - many of whom ran to midcourt to celebrate the win against the Tar Heels earlier this month - gathered near the baseline to shake hands with fourth-year coach Jeff Bzdelik and the Demon Deacons players. Wake Forest had lost by 23 at Virginia and by 15 at Pittsburgh since the 73-67 win against UNC.

N.C. State has now lost two straight since winning at Notre Dame, including Saturday's 31-point home loss to Virginia.
