LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Miah Spencer's floater at the buzzer lifted No. 19 North Carolina State to a 72-70 overtime victory over No. 9 Louisville on Thursday night.
    
The 5-foot-8 senior finished with 22 points on 11 of 17 shooting to lead the Wolfpack.
    
With the game tied at 70, Spencer took one dribble from the top of the key and her shot from the free throw line hit nearly every part of the rim before bouncing in. The Wolfpack (17-6, 6-3 ACC) forced a shotclock violation by Louisville with 10.3 seconds left on the possession before.
    
Louisville (20-5, 7-3) trailed 59-52 with 3:04 left in the fourth quarter before scoring the next seven points. Akela Maize's layup with 11 seconds left gave N.C. State a 61-59 advantage. Asia Durr forced overtime with two free throws with six seconds left.
