Wolfpack beat Cards as U of L's offense sputters

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Anthony "Cat" Barber scored 21 points, hitting 10 of 13 free throws, to help North Carolina State upset No. 9 Louisville 74-65 on Saturday.
   
The Wolfpack held Louisville to 33 percent shooting and dominated near the basket, outscoring the Cardinals 32-16 in the paint, to earn their second win against a top 10 conference opponent. N.C. State beat Duke on Jan. 11 and had lost six of eight since before today's win.
   
Trevor Lacey had 14 points and Ralston Turner 10 for N.C. State (15-11, 6-7 Atlantic Coast Conference)
   
Chris Jones scored 20 and Wayne Blackshear added 19 for Louisville (20-5, 8-4 ACC).
   
Terry Rozier and Montrezl Harrell, Louisville's leading scorers, combined for just 13 points after scoring a total of 50 in Wednesday's 69-56 win against Pittsburgh.
   
The Cardinals fell to 78-2 in the last three years when leading at halftime. Louisville led 31-30 at the break.
