North Carolina State 84, Richmond 72
North Carolina State broke open a close game late in the second half to remain undefeated with a 84-72 victory over Richmond in Raleigh, N.C.
The Spiders (2-2) trailed 45-44 at halftime but came back to take the lead early in the second half. The teams battled back and forth most of the rest of the way, with the Spiders taking a 63-62 lead on a 3-pointer by forward T.J. Cline with 9:41 to play.
However, the Wolfpack (5-0) scored the next eight points, and the Spiders never got closer than four the rest of the way.
Cline and forward Terry Allen more than held their own against the North Carolina State frontcourt. Cline tied for the team lead with 17 points off the bench, and he also pulled down seven rebounds. Allen made six of his nine shots and finished with 14 points.
Spiders guard Kendall Anthony contributed 17 points, but the Wolfpack backcourt controlled the game. North Carolina State guard Trevor Lacey led all scorers with 26 points, and he added six rebounds and five assists. Wolfpack guard Ralston Turner made all three of his 3-point attempts and finished with 23 points.
Richmond was also hurt on the boards. The Spiders were limited to 24 rebounds, while the Wolfpack had 15 on the offensive glass alone and finished with 38.
