RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- T.J. Warren scored 30 points - 26 in the
second half - to lead North Carolina State to a 75-56 victory
over Eastern Kentucky Saturday night at PNC Arena.

After a cold shooting first half (9 of 28 from the floor, 0-7
from beyond the arc), NC State (4-2) came out and outscored
Eastern Kentucky 9-2 in the first 2:38 of the second half to
take its first lead (30-29) since early in the first half (7-6).

Warren and Anthony Barber were the catalysts that got NC State
moving in the final 20 minutes Warren hit two jumpers to start
the half and Warren used his superior athletic ability to drive
and score seven straight points to give the Wolfpack a 47-41
lead it would not relinquish.

NC State then went on a tear in the final 10 minutes of the game
to quickly extend a 51-49 lead. Barber, Ralston Turner, Warren
and a thunderous dunk by Desmond Lee pushed the lead 65-51 with
3 minutes remaining.

Both teams struggled to hit jumpers in the first half. Senior
guard Glenn Cosey, one of the Ohio Valley Conference's top
players, struggled from long range and was held to 14 points. He
didn't hit his first 3-pointer until there was 5:05 remaining in
the half, which put the Colonials up by 10 (22-12) against the
equally-cold Wolfpack.

NC State briefly led 6-5 on a dunk by center Jordan Vandenberg
3:30 into the game. Over the next 12 minutes, the Wolfpack made
only 3 of 17 shots from the field, yet only trailed 22-15
because the Colonels missed their share from the floor (5 of

Eastern Kentucky dared NC State to shoot over its 2-3 zone and
the Wolfpack struggled from beyond the arc in the first half. It
scored 14 of its 21 points in the half from inside the paint,
using its size advantage.

Corey Walden added 13 points for Eastern Kentucky (6-2), which
had a four-game winning streak end.

NOTES: NCSU guard Tyler Lewis was perfect from the foul line
heading into the game (10-10 this year, 17 straight over two
seasons) before missing his first attempt late in the first
half. ... . NCSU is 10-1 all-time against EKU. This was the
first meeting between the schools since Jan. 23, 1960, a 58-50
NCSU win at Reynolds Coliseum. All 11 meetings have been in
Raleigh. The only EKU win was Feb. 28, 1959 (71-61). ... Eastern
Kentucky is 13-35 against the Atlantic Coast Conference, while
NC State is 14-2 against the Ohio Valley Conference.
