RALEIGH, N.C. - Junior Richard Howell scored a career-high 25 points to lead NC State to a 91-61 victory over Morehead State Sunday evening at the RBC Center in the opening round of the TicketCity Legends Classic.

Howell, whose previous career high was 18 last season at Duke, was one of three Wolfpack players to hit double figures in the game. He was joined by junior DeShawn Painter, who also had a career high with 19 points, thanks in great part to a seven-for-seven performance a the free throw line.
