RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Markell Johnson had 13 points and five assists to lead balanced North Carolina State to a 60-54 victory over Clemson.
The Wolfpack ended Clemson’s three-game win streak, which began with a home victory over N.C. State on Jan. 4.
N.C. State shot 50% in the first half to take a double-digit halftime lead, and Clemson couldn’t overcome shooting struggles from the field and the free-throw line.
Aamir Simms led the Tigers with 18 points.
Devon Daniels and D.J. Funderburk had 13 points each for the Wolfpack (13-5, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), and C.J. Bryce added 11.
