RALEIGH, N.C. — C.J. Leslie scored 25 points – including six straight during a key second-half run – to help No. 20 North Carolina State beat No. 1 Duke 84-76 on Saturday.

Richard Howell added 16 points and 18 rebounds in a relentless performance for the Wolfpack (14-2, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) in a matchup of the teams predicted to finish 1-2 in the league.

N.C. State was picked for the first time in nearly four decades to win the league, though two early losses drained some buzz.

No longer. Now N.C. State is back on everyone’s radar, while the Blue Devils (15-1, 2-1) are no longer unbeaten.
