Dec 5, 2009 - 10:19 PM By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer

MILWAUKEE(AP) -- Tracy Smith scored 17 of his 19 points after halftime as North Carolina State used a second-half surge to beat Marquette 77-73 on Saturday.

Smith was 9 for 14 from the floor and had a team-high 11 rebounds.

Javier Gonzalez scored 15 and Dennis Horner added 13 for the Wolfpack (6-1), who used hot 3-point shooting to rebound from Tuesday's surprising loss to Northwestern.

Jimmy Butler scored 19 with 12 rebounds and Lazar Hayward added 15 for Marquette (6-2). The Golden Eagles couldn't rally with a late flurry of 3-pointers and were unable to continue their better-then-expected start to what is supposed to be a rebuilding year.
