NC State Sweeps Duke, Clinches ACC Tournament Berth

Game 1: State 4, Duke 0
Game 2: State 8, Duke 3
Game 3. State 8, Duke 7

NC State rallied from a 7-3 deficit on Sunday to beat Duke 8-7 and complete the three-game sweep. With the win, State improved to 30-12 overall and 16-8 in the ACC. While the odds of catching FSU in the division remain incredibly slim, the Pack does have a firm hold of the No. 3 seed at the moment. And this sweep coupled with action elsewhere officially clinched an ACC Tournament berth for the Wolfpack--State cannot finish any lower than seventh.

That's a nice change from the last couple of years.

Next weekend, NC State steps out of conference to host the Cal State Bakersfield Fightin' Alex Johnsons. Between that series and the mid-week game following it, NC State has a good opportunity to push its winning streak to 10 before finishing up the regular season with series at Virginia Tech and Florida State.
