Video: C.J. Leslie posterizes North Carolina defender
N.C. State forward C.J. Leslie is having an outstanding season with the Wolfpack. The junior is averaging 15.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game to help lead State to a No. 18 national ranking. He has developed into one of the better all-around players in the country and he proved that again on Saturday against the rival Tar Heels.
Leading 25-18 with just over six minutes to go in the first half, Leslie threw down a monster one-handed dunk over North Carolina's Jackson Simmons.
Leslie was fouled on the play and went on to convert the three-point play.
His team was able to cruise to an easy 91-83 victory after racing out to a 19-point halftime lead.
The All-America candidate finished with a double-double after pouring in 17 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.
