The Wolfpack went wire-to-wire against Duke, leading by 15 at the half and winning by 22. Markell Johnson had 28 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists, Devon Daniels added 25 points and 9 rebounds, and DJ Funderburk had 21 points and 9 rebounds.
NC State is now 17-9 and 8-7 in conference. They still have five games remaining, including a rematch at Duke and a home game against Florida State. If they go 3-2 over their final five regular season games, they should be set for the NCAA Tournament.
