N.C. State Upsets #7 Duke

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Tracy Smith scored 23 points, Dennis Horner added 20 and North Carolina State stunned No. 7 Duke 88-74 on Wednesday night.

Javi Gonzalez had 15 points for the Wolfpack (13-6, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), including a critical 3-pointer that beat the shot clock with about four minutes left. It was N.C. State's first home win against Duke since 2004 and the first win against the Blue Devils overall since the first round of the 2007 ACC tournament.

By the time it was over, Wolfpack fans were charging the court for the kind of home win they haven't savored since an upset of highly ranked rival North Carolina in coach Sidney Lowe's first season.

Kyle Singler scored 22 points to lead the Blue Devils (15-3, 3-2), who fell behind by double figures in the first half and by as many as 17 points in the second half.
