An official who ejected two former North Carolina State stars from the stands last month is not taking part in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The league issued a statement Thursday saying Karl Hess decided not to officiate in Atlanta because he ''did not want to take away from the ACC tournament, its teams and the players.'' The ACC says the other officials ''agreed to respect'' the decision by Hess. Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani were ejected from their seats by Hess during a Feb. 18 game in Raleigh, N.C., between the Wolfpack and Florida State. Hess told ACC officials that the former players weren't ejected for anything they said, but for ''excessive demonstration on several calls.'' The league reviewed the incident and publicly reprimanded Hess.
