PITTSBURGH (AP) — T.J. Warren scored a career-high 41 points and N.C. State surged past Pittsburgh 74-67 on Monday night.

Warren's eighth 30-point game of the year gave the Wolfpack's flagging NCAA tournament hopes a needed boost. N.C. State (18-12, 8-9 ACC) won for just the second time in its last six games, riding Warren for much of the second half.

The ACC's leading scorer made seven straight shots at one point and finished 16 of 22 from the field. His emphatic dunk in the final seconds sealed it.

The Wolfpack came in having lost four of five, including brutal one-point losses to Syracuse and North Carolina. There would be no late collapse this time.

Lamar Patterson led Pitt (22-8, 10-7) with 17 points but the Panthers had no answer for Warren.
