DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Cody Stubbs singled home the go-ahead run in the top of the 18th inning and North Carolina advanced to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game by beating rival North Carolina State 2-1 early Sunday morning.

The top-seeded Tar Heels (51-8) will face Virginia Tech at 1 p.m. Sunday — nearly 11 hours after winning the longest game in ACC tournament history.

Landon Lassiter walked to start the 18th, moved to second when Colin Moran was hit by a pitch from Chris Overman (1-1) and advanced to third on Skye Bolt's bunt.

Stubbs then singled to short left field off Will Gilbert to bring home Lassiter.

Chris Munnelly (6-0) gave up a leadoff double to Brett Williams before getting two popouts and a groundout to end it at 1:52 a.m. ET.

Carlos Rodon threw 10 innings of one-hit ball with 14 strikeouts for third-seeded N.C. State (44-14).
