GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Kody Burke scored 16 points and North Carolina State rallied past Clemson 56-45 on Thursday in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Marissa Kastanek added 14 points for the eighth-seeded Wolfpack (16-15).

They held the Tigers without a field goal for the final 6-plus minutes and closed the game with a 16-1 run to advance to face No. 6 and top-seeded Duke on Friday in a rematch of a 2012 quarterfinal won by N.C. State.

Nikki Dixon scored 11 points for ninth-seeded Clemson (9-21), which went up 44-40 on Chancie Dunn's three-point play with 6:14 left. The Tigers missed their final nine shots.

Kastanek put N.C. State ahead to stay with a 3-pointer that made it 47-44 with just under 3 minutes left and Burke followed that with five quick points.

The Wolfpack have won at least one tournament game each year under fourth-year coach Kellie Harper.
