    NEWARK, N.J. -- Jeremy Ingram scored 28 points and gathered seven rebounds as North Carolina Central ran up a 28-point halftime lead and cruised to an 81-62 win over New Jersey Institute of Technology on Tuesday.

    NJIT (13-16) kept pace in the second half, but wasn't able to cut much into the deficit.
