RALEIGH, N.C. - Ralston Turner matched his career-high with 23 points, helping North Carolina State rally to beat Maryland 65-56 on Monday despite playing without Atlantic Coast Conference leading scorer T.J. Warren.
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 was making his first start in two months with Warren sidelined due to a sprained left ankle suffered late in Saturday's 35-point loss at Duke. Warren was averaging 22 points per game, but Turner and his Wolfpack teammates responded to the challenge against the Terrapins (11-8, 3-3).
Dez Wells and Evan Smotrycz each scored 10 for Maryland, which shot 31 percent for the game.
