Late turnover costs NC State

Cat Barber had 29 points and 7 assists, but this turnover in the final seconds helped Duke hang on for a 92-89 win over NC State in the ACC tournament.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

NC State didn't finish this one well at all. Barber winds shot clock down and then tries to dump a pass. Then Wolfpack wait forever to foul, down only 3.
