WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Now that the school record losing streak is over Buzz Peterson and the UNCW Seahawks look to move forward as they continue the homestretch of the CAA schedule.

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It's been a season of adversity for the Ashley girls basketball team, but the Screamin' Eagles keep on winning. Ashley is perfect in league play in the Mideastern Conference with a 10-0 mark. In fact they secured the Mideastern Conference regular season title over the weekend despite losing two starters for issues that have nothing to do with an injury.

RALEIGH, NC (AP) - ACC scoring leader T.J. Warren had a career-high 34 points and 10 rebounds to lead North Carolina State past Wake Forest 82-67 on Tuesday night.

Ralston Turner added 16 points while Warren, who entered averaging 22.6 points, had that by halftime and finished 15 of 26 with a career-high-tying three 3-pointers for the Wolfpack (16-8, 6-5), who have won five of six.

N.C. State reeled off 12 straight points midway through the second half and cruised from there to its ninth straight home win in the series.

SOUTH BEND, IN (AP) - Steve Vasturia made a pair of 3-pointers in the second overtime and Eric Atkins added 16 points as Notre Dame survived squandering a six-point lead late in regulation to beat Clemson 68-64 Tuesday night.

Vasturia hit the first 3 to give the Irish a 63-62 lead early then added a second with 62 seconds left that gave Notre Dame a 66-64 lead. Pat Connaughton then added a pair of free throws to help the Irish overcome a career-high 30 points and 14 rebounds by Clemson's K.J. McDaniels.

The Fighting Irish (13-12, 4-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) avoided falling below .500 for the first time this late in the season since finishing 14-16 during the 1998-99 season in John MacLeod's last year as coach. Clemson (15-8, 6-5) lost back-to-back games for just the second time this season.

Both teams squandered chances to win the game earlier.

"Don't be satisfied with just this one" ... Who in their right mind would be?

"I'm ready to play another one" ... Considering your bloated salary, you had better be!

"I like what we have going on now." ... One win isn't exactly a trend Buzzy!

Why anyone would pay this loser so much money is beyond comprehension!

Why UNCW does half of what it does is beyond comprehension!
