State scored the game's first 10 points and led by nine early in the second half. Ultimately, the Wolfpack held on, with Howell's three-point play breaking a tie and Scott Wood's 5-for-6 performance at the line in the final 28 seconds helping N.C. State keep its grip on the lead.

TYLER GRIFFEY made the easiest and biggest shot of his career. The senior forward took an inbounds pass and made a wide-open layup with 0.9 seconds to play to give Illinois a 74-72 victory over No. 1 Indiana on Thursday night, the fifth straight week the nation's top-ranked team lost. Hoosiers coach Tom Crean, whose team has been No. 1 for a total of 7 weeks this season, doesn't have a reason for the recent weekly changes on top of the poll. "I just know that these games are 40-minute games," Crean said.

FOR THOSE who don't regularly follow the team, there might not be a lot of familiar names on the Soul's roster. One player who should be recognizable to mainstream area sports fans is quarterback Adam DiMichele. DiMichele played at Temple from 2006 to '08 before spending time in Eagles training camp. He signed with the Soul in the winter and will back up Dan Raudabaugh, who tossed 100 touchdowns last year for Dallas. They are the only two quarterbacks in camp, so DiMichele's spot seems safe.
