RALEIGH, N.C. -- As far as basketball in the Atlantic Coast Conference goes, the state of North Carolina is typically king.

But in an anything-but-common, record-breaking 2011-12 season for the Florida State men's basketball team, the No. 20 Seminoles used their trip to Raleigh, N.C. to flip that logic -- at least from a regular-season standpoint -- on its ear Saturday against NC State.

In its impressive 76-62 win over the Wolfpack (18-9, 7-5 ACC) at the RBC Center, FSU (19-7, 10-2) has now defeated the four conference teams in the ACC -- NC State, Duke, Wake Forest and UNC -- in the same season for the first time in program history.
