The Wolfpack entered the game ranked second in the nation in field goal percentage, and did nothing to hurt that ranking by hitting 31 of 54 field-goal attempts for a 57.4 shooting percentage.

• During one stretch in the second half, the Pack made 13 of 16 shots from the field.

• Senior Richard Howell recorded his third consecutive double-double and his fourth in the Pack's last five games with 12 points and 19 rebounds. It was his fifth this season and the 18th of his career.

• Howell’s 19 rebounds are career high, eclipsing his mark of 18 set against Virginia at home last year (1/28/12). He also set a career-high for blocks with five in the game. His previous best was two on seven previous occasions.

• Junior Lorenzo Brown reached double-figure scoring in the first half for the first time this season with a basket at 4:59 remaining in the half. He ended the half with 12 points, going 5-for-5 from the field, including 1-for-1 from 3-point range and 1-for-1 from the line. He finished the night shooting 7-for-8 from the floor for 16 points.

• Freshman T.J. Warren finished with a team-high 21 points, one off his career best of 22 against Penn State in the opening game of the Puerto Rico Tip Off on Nov. 15.

• For the second consecutive game, NC State had a season-high seven blocked shots.

• Senior Scott Wood hit two 3-pointers in the first half to reach 250 in his career. He is the ACC's active leader and ranks 22nd all-time among conference players in career 3-point field goals made.

• For the seventh time this season, the Pack has had at least four players score in double figures. NC State is 6-1 in those contests.

• NC State improved to 29-0 all-time against teams from the MEAC.
