TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- "I think somebody said if I wake up tomorrow, it was awesome; if not ... it was a dream."

For Deividas Dulkys and the Florida State men's basketball team, Saturday -- from early morning to early evening -- was real. For No. 3 North Carolina, it was too real.

The Seminoles upset the visiting Tar Heels, 90-57, at the Donald L. Tucker Center capping off a day that started before the sun ever rose when fans began lining up outside the arena for a chance to be in the crowd during ESPN's live College Gameday broadcast.

Winston-Salem, N.C. - For the second straight year, NC State waltzed all over the Demon Deacons on their own home court. Last year was a 25-point road win, and this year was not much different, as the Pack (13-5, 2-1 ACC) led from start to finish in defeating Wake Forest, 76-40, Saturday afternoon in Winston-Salem.

The 36-point win marks the second-biggest ACC road win in school history, with only a 40-point win at Clemson in 1954 ranking higher. NC State has now won four straight over Wake Forest, and 8 of the last 11 overall.

Lorenzo Brown led four Wolfpack players in double figures with game-highs of 20 points and six assists. Richard Howell recorded his fifth double-double in the last seven games with 12 points and 12 rebounds, while C.J. Williams (15 points) and Scott Wood (12 points) also reached double figures.
