PHOTOS: Unranked Wolfpack Breaks The Blue Devils' Winning Streak In Upset

There was a major upset in men's college basketball on Sunday, when unranked NC State beat the previously undefeated Duke, 87-75.

The Wolfpack's Trevor Lacey scored 21 points, and Ralston Turner added 16. The team overall shot 55 percent.

NC State Coach Mark Gottfried says his team knocked down some tough shots, and kept heavy pressure on Duke's preseason All-American Jahlil Okafor.

“Great defensive effort. I thought our guys defensively locked in, tried to make things difficult for their shooters and their drivers and at the same time try to take away Okafor's one-on-one opportunities, which is hard to do.”

Okafor finished with 23 points and 12 rebounds for no. 2 Duke.
