Brown Leads NC State Past Campbell 87-81

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Lorenzo Brown scored 24 points, flirted with a triple-double and helped North Carolina State pull away to beat Campbell 87-81 on Thursday night.

Richard Howell added 17 points and 17 rebounds, and Scott Wood finished with 16 points for N.C. State (9-4). The Wolfpack were 28 of 31 from the free-throw line and held a 40-22 rebounding advantage, but needed a late 13-2 run to finally pull away from the inspired, hot-shooting Camels.

Brown finished with eight rebounds and eight assists -- and was 14 of 16 from the foul line -- to help the Wolfpack win their third straight and fourth in five games, with the only loss in that stretch coming to No. 1 Syracuse.

Darren White had 25 points while Lorne Merthie and Trey Freeman scored 15 apiece for Campbell (8-6), which shot nearly 50.9 percent (29 of 57).

    We are glad that NC State is a concern to you Chris. Between you and Anonymous, it's a wonder if you can get any sleep.

      I don;t think anyone is saying that the Pack is going to win a title anytime soon.
