when Virginia turned a 32-29 deficit into a 40-32 lead.

Richard Howell led N.C. State with 14 points and Tracy Smith had

12.

Mustapha Farrakhan added 11 points and Jerome Meyinsse 10 for

Virginia, while Sylven Landesberg failed to score in double figures

for the first time this season, finishing with seven. But

assists.
