This is NC State’s third consecutive ACC Tournament title. The Wolfpack are the first program to pull that off since Notre Dame won four in a row from 2014-17. No ACC program has ever won five consecutive tournament titles.
NC State will now have a week off before finding out its NCAA Tournament regional next Monday.
