RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Anthony “Cat” Barber scored 29 points, Caleb Martin hit two clutch 3-pointers and North Carolina State beat Northeastern 72-66 on Tuesday night for its sixth straight win.

Freshman Maverick Rowan scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half, hitting four 3s for the Wolfpack (10-3), who shot 62 percent in the second half.

Quincy Ford scored 15 points and David Walker had 13 for the Huskies (8-5), who tied it at 57 on a 3 by Donnell Gresham Jr. with four minutes left.

Martin countered with a 3 from the left wing before twin brother Cody Martin pestered Walker on his drive to the rim. Caleb Martin and Rowan then played hot potato with the ball before Martin swished a 3 in front of the N.C. State bench to make it 63-57 with just over three minutes to go.
