T.J. Warren, the Atlantic Coast Conference’s leading scorer, recorded a career-high 41 points Monday night and led North Carolina State to a come-from-behind 74-67 win at Pitt.
Warren made 16-of-22 shots from the floor, including 3-for-5 from three-point range, and was 6-for-7 from the foul line. The 41 points were the most by a Wolfpack player since Rodney Monroe scored 48 in a game against Georgia Tech in 1991. No other player scored more than 10 points for N.C. State (18-12; 8-9 ACC).
Josh Newkirk paced Pitt (22-8; 10-7) with his own career high of 20 points. Lamar Patterson added 17 points and 6 assists, and Talib Zanna tallied 11 points and nine rebounds.
Pitt led by 13 points at one stage in the first half of the game at the Petersen Events Center.
The Panthers will close the regular season on Saturday at Clemson. The game will air at 3:30 PM on ESPN Radio 1120. The ACC tournament begins on Wednesday, March 12.
