You must consider these NINE players! You simply must. And while doing so, allow us to tell you…
Tigers pound The Citadel
Devin Booker scored 14 points and Tanner Smith added 11 as Clemson defeated The Citadel 73-50 on Tuesday night for its 14th straight victory over the military college.
Milton Jennings was the third player in double figures for Clemson (2-0), which used a suffocating defense and its height advantage over the outmanned Bulldogs.
Mike Groselle led The Citadel (1-2) with 16 points while Cosmo Morabbi and Bo Holston had eight each.
Clemson led the entire way, jumping out to an 11-3 lead early behind 54 percent shooting. The Tigers held the Bulldogs to just 30 percent shooting for the game.
Midway through the first period, Clemson mounted a 17-6 run to take a 28-14 lead. With another 11-3 run at the end of the half, Clemson went to the locker room with a 39-21 halftime lead.
Clemson started the second half in a zone defense, only to see The Citadel score the first five points of the period, all by sophomore guard DeVonte Wright, including a 3-pointer.
Clemson coach Brad Brownell called a timeout and the Tigers returned to the court in their pressing, man-to-man defense.
The Bulldogs didn't score again until 9:50 left in the game, when P.J Hogan got loose for The Citadel and banked in a basket after two Clemson defenders went flying past him trying to block the shot.
But by that time Clemson led 55-28.
