T.J. Warren leads N.C. State to 85-70 win in Canary Islands

T.J. Warren is making the most of his chances on N.C. State's preseason trip to Spain. Warren, a freshman from Durham, led the Wolfpack with 26 points in its 85-70 win over CB Gran Canaria on Friday at the Grand Canary Islands.

Warren, a McDonald's All-American, is expected to help State with perimeter scoring and as a post defender. He has been an explosive scorer in the first three games, getting extra minutes on the perimeter with guard Rodney Purvis back in Raleigh still waiting for clearance from the NCAA. Warren had 20 in the Pack's win on Tuesday over CB Torrejon.

“T.J. did a really good job for us today scoring a lot of points,” coach Mark Gottfried said in a statement released by the team.

Warren did more than score on Friday with 13 rebounds, four assists and two steals. Warren made 13 of his 16 shots.

Senior guard Scott Wood added 23 points, with seven 3-pointers, for the Wolfpack, which improved to 3-0 on its European trip.

Junior guard Lorenzo Brown continued his strong play, showing no ill effects from recent knee surgery, with 13 points and eight assists.

Junior forward C.J. Leslie added 10 points and 11 rebounds.
