Warren scores 17 in NC State win over Irish

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — T.J. Warren scored 17 points and North Carolina State outscored Notre Dame 23-9 at the free-throw line to beat the Fighting Irish 77-70 Tuesday night.

The Wolfpack (11-4, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who had squandered double-digit leads in two of their previous three games — and nearly did in the other one also — allowed the Irish to use a 12-3 run in the second half to tie the score at 54. But N.C. State never let the Irish get the lead in the second half.

It was the first loss in three games for the Irish (10-5, 1-1) since leading scorer Jerian Grant was dismissed from school for an academic violation.

Anthony "Cat" Barber added 16 points for the Wolfpack, Desmond Lee and Ralston Turner added 12 each.

Garrick Sherman led the Irish with 21 points and a career-high 18 rebounds, Pat Connaughton had 15 and Eric Atkins 14.
