Upset over Heels led to magical run for Wolfpack

The springboard victory in State’s captivating 10-game winning streak to end the 1983 season may have come in the form of a 91-84 overtime upset of defending national champion North Carolina in the semifinals of the ACC tournament. With point guard Sidney Lowe exploding for 19 points in the first half and Whittenburg scoring 11 in overtime, the Wolfpack toppled the No. 5 team in the country, fueling their confidence for a magical run.
