RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Torin Dorn scored 12 points and North Carolina State routed Saint Peter's 85-57 on Tuesday night.

Eric Lockett added 11 points, and Braxton Beverly and freshman Jerricole Hellems had 10 apiece to help the Wolfpack (5-0) earn their fifth straight blowout of an overmatched opponent.

N.C. State shot 52 percent and held the Peacocks without a field goal for about 12½ minutes of the first half while pushing its lead into the 30s with a 41-8 run, a burst keyed by 11 points from Dorn and six 3-pointers.

The Wolfpack finished with 10 3s, making nine of them in the first half three nights after they hit eight in the first half of a rout of Maine.

Davauhnte Turner had 20 points on 6-of-15 shooting to lead Saint Peter’s (1-3), which missed 11 consecutive shots while falling into that inescapable deficit and losing its third straight. The Peacocks shot 33 percent and were just 4 of 21 from 3-point range.
