RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Lorenzo Brown had 21 points and 10 assists and No. 20 North Carolina State pulled away late to beat Georgia Tech 83-70 on Wednesday night for its ninth straight win.
Scott Wood added 20 points and C.J. Leslie had 19 in his 10th straight game in double figures for the Wolfpack (13-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).
The nation's most accurate shooting team shot 50.9 percent and needed a late surge to remain on a roll heading into its biggest game of the season -- a visit Saturday from top-ranked Duke.
Robert Carter Jr. had 15 points and 10 rebounds and Mfon Udofia added 13 points for the Yellow Jackets (10-4, 0-2).
They controlled the tempo for the first 30 minutes and led 51-47 with 10 minutes to play but managed just three field goals in the final 7 minutes and lost their second straight.
This one was tight for most of the way, with 11 ties and 14 lead changes. With Georgia Tech patiently in charge of the pace, neither team could assemble anything rese...

RALEIGH, NC --- North Carolina State has talent, NBA talent. That isn't debatable.

For much of the way, Georgia Tech forced No. 20 North Carolina State to play its way. But once the Yellow Jackets started giving up fast breaks, the Wolfpack simply ran away from them.

For clarification I do think the game between No. 1 Duke and No. 20 NC State on Saturday is a big game, in fact it is the biggest game between these two teams since the early 2000s if not the 1980s.
CJ Leslie and Lorenzo Brown are looking to get a win over Duke on Saturday in Raleigh.
