March Madness: 11th seed NC State beats No. 6 Texas Tech to extend remarkable run.

NC State continued its amazing run after winning the ACC tournament.

Following a four-game losing streak to conclude the regular season, the 11th-seeded Wolfpack defeated No. 6 seed Texas Tech 80-67 on Thursday to start an NCAA tournament run no one expected.

The program hasn't reached the second round since 2015, when it upset No. 1 Villanova.

Duquesne defeated BYU and Oregon defeated South Carolina earlier in the day, making it a nice day for the No. 11 seed. 

 Clemson, the last No. 6 seed, faces New Mexico on Friday.

NC State reached March Madness with a five-win-in-five-nights ACC tournament run that upset Duke, Virginia, and UNC. First ACC title since 1987 and first five-game conference tournament win streak since Kemba Walker guided UConn to the 2011 Big East title.

Many college basketball fans remember Walker leading the No. 3 seed Huskies to the NCAA title.

Though seeded lower than UConn, NC State looked like a battle-tested experienced club on Thursday. The Wolfpack led 37-33 at halftime after battling the Red Raiders for most of the first half.
