In its victory over Georgia Tech, the Wolfpack recorded its 10th win in ACC play for the first time since the 2005- 06 season.
With 18 points, Howell led the Wolfpack in scoring for the fifth time this season.
Since entering the starting lineup, T.J. Warren has scored in double figures in each of those contests, including 14 tonight against Georgia Tech.
Tyler Lewis' 3-pointer with 10:52 on the clock was the Pack's first of the night and extended NC State's streak to 108 games with a 3-pointer.
Scott Wood was held without a 3-point field goal for the first time since Dec. 8 versus Cleveland State and the first time in ACC play this season.
The starting lineup of Lorenzo Brown, Howell, C.J. Leslie, Warren and Wood is now 4-2 on the season and 3-1 since head coach Mark Gottfried went back to that starting five beginning with the Florida State game on Feb. 19.
With the win over Georgia Tech, NC State has now won three season series' against ACC opponents. The other two are Boston College and Clemson.
