    BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Len'Nique Brown hit a game-winning floater with 4.5 seconds left in overtime to lead No. 14 North Carolina State past Virginia Tech 72-71 on Sunday.

    Brown's game-winner followed a 3-pointer by Hannah Young that gave Virginia Tech a 71-70 lead with 27 seconds remaining. Virginia Tech had a chance to win in the waning seconds but Serafina Maulupe's heave at the buzzer from nearly halfcourt hit the front of the rim and N.C. State (21-3, 8-2 ACC) prevailed.

    The Wolfpack are off to their best start since the 1981-82 season, when they also began 21-3. Virginia Tech (11-12, 1-9) has still never beaten N.C. State, with the Wolfpack now having won all 15 meetings between the two.

    The Hokies led 46-36 with 11 minutes left in regulation but N.C. State came back and forced overtime on a layup by Markeisha Gatling with 26 seconds left that tied the game at 60-60.
