ECU Falls To N.C. State 85-65

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Lorenzo Brown had 16 points and Scott Wood 13 as North Carolina State used a 42-10 run to blow out state rival East Carolina, 85-65, at the Charleston Classic on Thursday night.

The Wolfpack (2-0) improved to 19-1 against the Pirates (2-1), who lost for the first time under new coach Jeff Lebo.

Brown, a freshman, and Wood, a sophomore, provided the scoring punch for North Carolina State as senior starters Tracy Smith and Javier Gonzalez mostly watched from the bench.

Not that it mattered much. The Wolfpack's young players took control with less than six minutes to play in the first half and trailing 23-22. They followed with a burst that lasted nearly 15 minutes and spanned halftime.

Brown scored 11 points in the charge that put North Carolina State ahead 64-33 with 12 minutes left.

Corvonn Gaines had 11 points to lead East Carolina.
