State senior guard C.J. Williams scored a career-high 21 points on 6-for-14 shooting from the field. He was 8-for-9 from the free throw line. It was his 100th career game. He needs just five points for 500 career points.
"C.J. was good," State coach Mark Gottfried said. "I'm a little more critical than everybody, because I think defensively he's really good but can be better."
State junior guard Scott Wood made 5-of-9 3-point attempts. He's shooting 57 percent from the arc this season and has made five 3-pointers in games against Elon and Morehead State.
State's three games at Reynolds Coliseum this season are the most ever in a season since the team moved to RBC Center during the 1999-2000. Since that move, the Pack is 13-0 in contest played at Reynolds.
The men's team played its second double-header with the women's team at Reynolds since moving to the RBC Center. The last time was Dec. 14, 2002.
N.C. Central played without starting senior guard Landon Clement, who missed the game with an injured right foot. The former Sanderson High player is the Eagles' third leading scorer with 15.9 points per game.
