Raleigh, NC (Sports Network) - C.J. Leslie totaled 21 points and eight rebounds to lead the No. 23 North Carolina State Wolfpack to an 89-68 win over UNC Greensboro at PNC Arena.

Lorenzo Brown and Scott Wood added 15 points apiece for the Wolfpack (11-2), who have won seven in a row. Richard Howell contributed 11 points and 13 rebounds for the hosts.

Kayel Locke poured in 21 points for the Spartans (2-9), losers in three straight and seven of eight. Derrell Armstrong put up 16 points and Kelvin McNeal had 10 points and as many rebounds in the setback.

McNeal's shot to open the second half pulled the Spartans within 43-38, but the Wolfpack slowly pulled away.

Leslie followed with a three-point play, Wood drained one from beyond the arc and Howell's slam made it 51-38.

Warren later scored five straight and it was 60-42 for NC State with just over six minutes played.

UNCG was only able to lower its deficit to 11, and 73-62 with 5:43 to play after a Locke free throw, but Howell and Brown made all four of their free- throw tries and Rodney Purvis countered a Locke layup and the hosts led 79-64 just over a minute later.
