RALEIGH, N.C. - Jakia Brown-Turner scored a career-high 25 points and fourth-ranked North Carolina State avenged a loss earlier this month by beating rival North Carolina 82-63.

Elissa Cunane added 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Wolfpack (15-2, 10-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led by double figures much of the way.

The Tar Heels (11-9, 6-9) got no closer than eight after halftime and spent the entire afternoon trying to climb back after a cold-shooting first half.

The Tar Heels had beaten the Wolfpack 76-69 at home exactly two weeks earlier, marking the third straight season they had toppled a Wolfpack team ranked in the top 10. They defied their persistent struggles from behind the arc in that one by hitting a season-high 11 3-pointers.

This time, though, the Tar Heels missed their first 16 3-pointers until Petra Holesinska finally connected on one late in the third quarter.

Freshman Deja Kelly scored 14 points to lead the Tar Heels, who shot just 35% and made 5 of 24 3s on the afternoon.

N.C. State wore pink uniforms for the 16th annual Play4Kay Game, continuing a tradition started by late Wolfpack coach Kay Yow to use a home game to raise awareness and money to fight women's cancers.
