ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands -- Dennis Smith Jr. scored a career-high 24 points and N.C. State held off Saint Josephs for a 73-63 victory Monday in the third-place game of the Paradise Jam tournament.Torin Dorn added 19 points, Terry Henderson 15 and Abdul-Malik Abu had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Wolfpack (4-1), who overcame an 11-point deficit in the first half to lead by as many as 14 points.I think we just started really slow, N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried said. I dont know if it was because of last nights game (a 112-94 loss to Creighton in the semifinals Sunday). We didnt have a lot of zip early. But around the 12-minute mark of the first half, we really started to play. We got going, started to execute and our defense was better. Our guys really responded.Shavar Newkirk scored 23 points and Charlie Brown added 14 for the Hawks (3-2), who shot just 32.9 percent from the field (24 of 73) including 5 of 22 from 3-point range.Still, Saint Josephs managed to make N.C. State sweat in the closing minutes. Down 57-43 with less than 11 minutes remaining, the Hawks pulled to within six points three times, the last at 69-63 with 2:29 remaining.But Smith connected of a pair of free throws less than a minute later, followed by a Henderson dunk that pushed N.C. States lead back to double digits.We had some terrific numbers -- 22 offensive rebounds, 73 shots, eight turnovers, 10 for 12 from the foul line, Saint Josephs coach Phil Martelli said. Just terrific numbers. We just didnt have enough guys making shots.BIG PICTURESaint Josephs: Sophomore guard Lamarr Kimble struggled in Mondays game, missing his first 10 shots. He finished with three points on 1-of-15 shooting, including 1-of-7 3-pointers.N.C. State: Smith showed why he was voted the ACCs preseason rookie of the year and put on the leagues preseason first team. While not particularly effective shooting (6 of 15 from the field, 3 of 6 on 3-pointers), he made 9 of 10 from the free throw line and added eight assists.UP NEXTSaint Josephs: Takes a few days off, then hosts Temple on Nov. 30.N.C. State: Hosts fellow Paradise Jam participant Loyola-Chicago on Saturday. Marshon Lattimore Saints Jersey. Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. Ryan Ramczyk Jersey. While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. http://www.thenflsaintsauthenticonline.com/Youth-Marshon-Lattimore-Elite-Jersey/. William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. Alvin Kamara Saints Jersey. The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. Adrian Peterson Jersey. Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR. WACO, Texas -- Al Freeman scored 16 points and Baylor cruised to a 76-61 victory over Oral Roberts on Friday night.Freeman was 6 of 9 from the floor and made three 3-pointers. Manu Lecomte, who sat out last year after transferring from Miami, added 13 points and 10 assists without a turnover.Its a great feeling. I was a little nervous before the game, Lecomte said. Obviously, I havent played in a year and a half, so I was a little nervous.Jo Lual-Acuil Jr., who missed last season due to a heart condition, added 12 points and nine rebounds for the Bears.The Bears shot 55.6 percent in the first half and took a 38-31 lead into intermission before pulling away midway through the second half. Their 10 3-pointers helped offset a 38-22 edge in the paint for Oral Roberts.I thought last year defensively, we struggled at the 3-point line, Baylor coach Scott Drew said. And I thought we shared the ball well. Anytime you have 10 assists, zero turnovers from the point guard play, thats hard to beat. Very impressive performance from Manu.Emmanuel Nzekwesi scored 15 points to lead the Golden Eagles, who didnt have another player reach double figures.I give Baylor a lot of credit especially on the defensive end, Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton said. They held two of our best players to 6-for-26 shooting, and youre not going to beat any goood team on the road when Albert (Owens) and Jalen (Bradley) shoot like that.dddddddddddd.Bradley scored nine points and Owens added eight. I think Baylors defense had a lot to do with that, said Sutton. Those two guys are going to have great years. Its just one of those nights when the ball didnt go in.BIG PICTUREBaylor: Baylor struggled with its inside game, but that figures to improve with the return of Johnathan Motley, who served a one-game suspension after violating an NCAA rule by playing in an improper summer league game.Oral Roberts: The Golden Eagles hoped their experienced team could make an early statement after a 14-17 mark last season. Their chances were hurt by Albert Owens, their returning leading scorer, rebounder and shot-blocker, shooting 3 of 14 from the floor.UP NEXTBaylor has a chance to make an early statement Tuesday, when it welcomes No. 5 Oregon to the Ferrell Center. The Bears didnt receive a vote in any preseason poll for the first time since 2009 despite winning 20 or more for the fifth straight season.Oral Roberts gets its home opener Monday against Rogers State before traveling to the Virgin Islands for the Paradise Jam.
