NC Central kept the lead for much of the second half as well, but NC State's Patrick Wallace hit a three with 2.7 seconds left to send the game into overtime knotted at, 63-63.

The Eagles responded by scoring the first 11 points of the extra session and never looked back.

Neither team shot particularly well overall, combining to shoot 6-36 from three. The Eagles won the battle of the boards, 37-30.

The Wolfpack, who drop to 2-2 and host Florida Gulf Coast next, were led by Anthony Barber, who scored 22 points, including a 12-16 mark from the line.
