Leslie Leads NC State Past Maryland 79-74

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- C.J. Leslie had 20 points and 11 rebounds and North Carolina State held on to beat Maryland 79-74 on Sunday night in their Atlantic Coast Conference opener.

Scott Wood scored 19 points and Lorenzo Brown added 11 for the Wolfpack (12-4, 1-0). They hit 47.5 percent of their shots -- 28 of 59 -- and were 21 of 24 from the free-throw line to win their sixth straight and snap the Terrapins' seven-game winning streak.

Mark Gottfried became the first N.C. State coach since Les Robinson in 1991 to win his first ACC game, and the surging Wolfpack have won seven of eight with the lone loss in that stretch coming to No. 1 Syracuse.

Terrell Stoglin scored 25 points -- he entered averaging an ACC-best 21 -- but the Terrapins (10-4, 0-1) dropped new coach Mark Turgeon's first ACC game.

      Unemployed? He retired as head coach at 66 years old and is currently the asst AD at the school. You obviously do not know what you are talking about so dont say anything, understand?

      Unemployed is what you are. Coach Williams retired after a long and successful career.

        Gary 'retired' because he knew his team wasn't going to be any good this year.

          So the fact that he is 66 years old doesnt have anything to do with it? He is still employed by the school as an asst AD. I swear there are some dumb people that comment on this website, dumbest I have ever seen.
