RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)
Freshman Anthony ''Cat'' Barber added 12 points for the Wolfpack (3-2), while fifth-year senior Jordan Vandenberg had his own strong game with seven points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in his first action this year following a preseason ankle injury.
N.C. State shot 55 percent, dominated the boards and got plenty of easy baskets in the paint to coast to an easy home win.
Chase Fieler scored 18 to lead the Eagles (4-2), who shot 35 percent and struggled to slow N.C. State's humming-along offense all night. Florida Gulf Coast - which grabbed national attention with its ''Dunk City'' run to the NCAA round of 16 last season - trailed by 15 at halftime and by as many as 27 points in the second half.
