NC State’s two-game winning streak came to an end in Durham as No. 2 Duke downed the Wolfpack, 94-78. The loss dropped State’s record below .500 in ACC play.

HIGHLIGHTS

Three-fence: Despite giving the Blue Devils shooting 53.0 percent for the game, State managed to limit Duke to only three three-pointers on 16 tries. Cam Reddish had the most attempts with seven but only made one deep ball while R.J. Barrett and Tre Jones each made a three-pointer for Duke.

Men of Steal: Even though the Wolfpack found itself behind in the first half, State managed to force eight Duke turnovers.
