RALEIGH, N.C. - Jeremy Ingram scored 11 of his 29 points in overtime and North Carolina Central claimed its first win over an Atlantic Coast Conference school by beating North Carolina State 82-72 on Wednesday night.
Ingram made up for a critical missed free throw late in regulation by scoring the first nine points of OT, and that helped the Eagles (3-1) give the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference its first win over the ACC since 2009.
Raleigh native Emanuel Chapman added a career-high 18 points before fouling out for the Eagles. They never trailed in the second half and were 41 of 45 from the free-throw line.
Anthony "Cat" Barber scored 18 of his 22 points after halftime for N.C. State.
The Wolfpack never led after the first half but forced overtime on walk-on Patrick Wallace's 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left - only to miss their first five shots of OT.
