RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)

Jeremy Ingram scored 11 of his 29 points in overtime and North Carolina Central claimed its first win over an Atlantic Coast Conference school by beating North Carolina State 82-72 on Wednesday night.

Ingram made up for a critical missed free throw late in regulation by scoring the first nine points of OT, and that helped the Eagles (3-1) give the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference its first win over the ACC since 2009.

Raleigh native Emanuel Chapman added a career-high 18 points before fouling out for the Eagles. They never trailed in the second half and were 41 of 45 from the free-throw line.

Anthony ''Cat'' Barber scored 18 of his 22 points after halftime for N.C. State.

The Wolfpack never led after the first half but forced overtime on walk-on Patrick Wallace's 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left - only to miss their first five shots of OT.

Ingram was 19 of 21 from the free-throw line, but one of those misses stung: He missed with 11.3 seconds to leave it at 63-60 and give the Wolfpack one last chance.

Barber dribbled into trouble and kicked out to Wallace, whose wide-open 3 from the corner tied it at 63.

Once overtime started, Ingram took over.

He started it with two quick free throws, followed them with a 3-pointer from the left wing, added a drive down the lane and capped his personal 9-0 run with two more free throws with 2:18 left to make it 72-63.

Karamo Jawara's foul shot with 1:28 remaining gave the Eagles a 74-63 lead and they pulled away from there.

Jawara and Alfonzo Houston each had 12 points for the Eagles, who improved to 1-13 against the ACC. The Eagles had lost their previous four meetings with N.C. State by an average of nearly 30 points.

T.J. Warren scored 13 points before fouling out and Desmond Lee finished with 12 before for the Wolfpack, who fell to 29-1 against MEAC schools.

Barber's layup with just under 9 minutes gave the Wolfpack their first tie of the second half at 46-all. Lennard Freeman later made it 53-53 with his layup through contact with 3:29 left, but he missed the free throw that would have given N.C. State its first lead since midway through the first half.

The Eagles then ran off six straight points and went up 59-53 on Chapman's free throw with 1:33 left.

The new-look Wolfpack are replacing just about everyone from a group that reached the NCAA tournament for the second straight year under coach Mark Gottfried. With only three players back, N.C. State was picked 10th in the 15-team ACC.

N.C. Central - the third-place pick in the low-major MEAC - had three seniors and two juniors in its starting lineup but led by as many as eight during a first half in which they got next to nothing from Ingram - who had just six points - and missed all nine of their 3-pointers.
