Leslie Leads NC State Past Miami 77-73

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- C.J. Leslie had 21 points and 11 rebounds, and North Carolina State withstood a late charge from Miami to beat the Hurricanes 77-73 on Wednesday night.

Lorenzo Brown added 16 points and Scott Wood had 15 with five 3-pointers for the Wolfpack (19-11, 8-7 Atlantic Coast Conference).

They shot 50 percent (28 of 56) and kept Miami winless in Raleigh, while snapping a four-game losing streak and locking up their first .500 finish in league play since they were 10-6 in 2006. That was also the last time the Wolfpack made the NCAA tournament.

Rion Brown scored 15 points and Malcolm Grant added 14 for Miami (17-11, 8-7). Grant's 3-pointer -- with Lorenzo Brown's hand in his face -- tied it at 69 with 1:36 left. Wood countered with a 3 from the wing that restored the Wolfpack's three-point lead with 1:07 left.
