RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Ralston Turner matched his career-high with 23 points, helping North Carolina State rally to beat Maryland 65-56 on Monday night in Raliegh, N.C.

Dez Wells and Evan Smotrycz each scored 10 for Maryland, which shot 31 percent for the game. Charles Mitchell finished with eight points and a career-high 18 rebounds, including nine on the offensive end.

Desmond Lee added 14 points for the Wolfpack (12-7, 2-4 ACC), who rallied from 11 down early in the second half to snap a three-game losing streak. N.C. State shot 57 percent after halftime, with Turner scoring 19 points and knocking down all five of his 3-pointers in the second half.

Turner, an LSU transfer, made it happen with his best scoring effort in an N.C. State uniform.

Maryland looked on its way to a second straight win when it took its biggest lead at 31-20 on Shaquille Cleare's hook shot over Jordan Vandenberg 30 seconds into the second half.

But the Wolfpack answered with an 8-0 flurry, ending when Desmond Lee found a trailing Kyle Washington for big transition dunk that erased the Terps' working margin.

Turner took over later on, hitting consecutive 3-pointers that put the Wolfpack ahead to stay at 48-46 with 8:50 left.
