College Basketball Roundup: Victory for Wolfpack

Associated Press
The ACC basketball roundup …
RALEIGH ó Richard Howell had a career-high 25 points to help North Carolina State beat Morehead State 91-61 on Sunday, giving coach Mark Gottfried a 2-0 start with the Wolfpack.
DeShawn Painter also had a career-high with 19 points in a dominating offensive performance for N.C. State, while Scott Wood had 18 points and hit five 3-pointers in the opening 20 minutes. More impressively, N.C. State shot 61.1 percent (33 of 54) with an offense that moved the ball crisply, avoided turnovers and got out in transition to speed up the pace.
The Wolfpack led 48-30 at halftime and pushed that margin past 30 points by midway through the second half. N.C. State finished with 26 assists on 33 field goals, playing unselfishly from the tip to the horn.
Terrance Hill had 14 points to lead the Eagles (0-1), who shot 40 percent and never figured a way to slow down N.C. State.
Maryland 71, UNC Wilmington 62
COLLEGE PARK, Md. ó Mark Turgeon got off to a successful start as Marylandís new coach Sunday night.
Terrell Stoglin scored 22 for Maryland (1-0), which won its 10th straight opener overall and 35th in a row at home. The Terrapins opened the second half with a 13-4 run to go up 45-31 and never let the margin shrink below six points.
It was Marylandís first game since 1989 without Gary Williams on the sideline. Williams retired in May as the winningest coach in school history and was replaced by Turgeon, who took Texas A&M to the NCAA tournament four straight seasons.
Virginia 75, South Carolina State 38
CHARLOTTESVILLE ó KT Harrell and Joe Harris scored 13 points apiece and Mike Scott grabbed 15 rebounds as Virginia won its season opener on Sunday.
The 37-point margin of victory was the largest in the Tony Bennett era.
