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).
NC State then went on a tear in the final 10 minutes of the game to push open a 51-49 lead.
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. Corey Walden added 13 points for Eastern Kentucky (6-2), which had a four-game winning streak end.
