PITTSBURGH, PA - BeeJay Anya's hook shot rolled around and in with a second to play, lifting North Carolina State to a stunning 66-65 victory over LSU in the NCAA Tournament on Thursday night.

The eighth-seeded Wolfpack (21-13) trailed by as much as 16 but rallied to earn a date with top-seeded Villanova in the round of 32 on Saturday.

Cat Barber led N.C. State with 17 points and Abdul-Malik Abu added 13, but Anya came up with the biggest play of the game. Senior Trevor Lacey tried to work for a shot with the clock winding down before giving up and feeding Anya in the block. The burly sophomore got off a left-handed hook and it caromed in.

Tim Quarterman scored 17 points, but the Tigers (22-11) collapsed late. LSU missed its last 12 field goals and six crucial free throws in the final 4 minutes.
