RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – N.C. State women’s basketball head coach Wes Moore was named the ACC Coach of the Year on Tuesday.

The Atlantic Coast Conference’s head coaches chose Moore as the top coach after he led the Wolfpack to a 17-2 (12-2) record.

The Pack toppled two No. 1 teams this season – South Carolina 54-46 and Louisville 74-60.

Moore has built a powerhouse in Raleigh since being named head coach of the Pack in April 2013.

N.C. State earned a double-bye in this week’s ACC Tournament in Greensboro after finishing second in the ACC after Louisville.
