RALEIGH, NC – C.J. Leslie scored 25 points and Richard Howell put in a dominating shift down low with 16 points and 18 rebounds as #20 North Carolina State downed top-ranked Duke 84-76 on Saturday.
Fans stormed the court after the game as the Wolfpack knocked off the #1 Blue Devils to improve to 3-0 in the ACC for the first time since the 1988-89 season.
