The 6-foot-8 forward is providing interior toughness and relentless rebounding for the No. 20 Wolfpack. Heading into Saturday's home game against top-ranked Duke, Howell doesn't want N.C. State to squander any opportunity to claim the league title it was picked to win in the preseason.
Howell is averaging about 13 points and 10 rebounds while shooting 63 percent from the field.
He said he focuses every game on playing ``as hard as I could every second I was on the floor.''
Duke center Mason Plumlee said the Blue Devils will have to concentrate on boxing out Howell.
