The Wolfpack withstood one of their worst starts of the season -- roughly 7 minutes elapsed before their first field goal -- and took their first lead on McCauley's left-handed layup over 7-footer Brian Zoubek with 3 1/2 minutes left.
N.C. State led 26-22 at halftime after holding the Blue Devils to less than 30 percent shooting. The Blue Devils trailed at the half for the third time this season -- and for the teams' third straight meeting -- but rallied to send the Wolfpack to their 12th loss in 13 games against ACC teams dating to last season.
