Pirates Play Well But Fall Short Against Pack, 87-76

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Brandon Costner had 24 points and 17
rebounds to help North Carolina State beat East Carolina 87-76 on
Wednesday night.

Ben McCauley added 20 points for the Wolfpack (6-1), who used
Javi Gonzalez's running heave from halfcourt just before halftime
to start a game-turning 18-2 spurt. N.C. State shot 52 percent for
the game and led by as many as 16 points in the second half before
holding off a late rally to avenge last year's road loss.

Brock Young scored 25 points to lead the Pirates (8-2), who got
as close as four points in the final 3 minutes but couldn't
complete the comeback.

East Carolina upset N.C. State 75-69 last year in Greenville,
beating the Wolfpack for the first time in 18 meetings and earning
its first win in 58 tries against an Atlantic Coast Conference
program.
