Leslie, Harrow Lead NC State Past Elon 87-72

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- C.J. Leslie scored 19 points, fellow freshman Ryan Harrow added 17 and North Carolina State held off pesky Elon 87-72 on Wednesday night.

Tracy Smith scored 11 of his 15 points in the second half of his return to the starting lineup for the Wolfpack (10-4).

They twice trailed by 10 in the first half, but shot 62.5 percent (30 for 48) and used a strong second half to win their fourth straight heading into the start of Atlantic Coast Conference play this weekend.

Chris Long scored 20 points and hit five 3-pointers for Elon (6-8), which shot 47 percent from 3-point range but was denied its first victory against an ACC team since 2005, falling to 0-4 against that league this season.
