Six games highlight week eleven in the ACC, but only two teams, Clemson and Georgia Tech, control…
Tigers pound P.C.
Johnson finished with 12 points. Bryan Narcisse also chipped in off the bench with 10 points.
"I thought we needed to play tonight," head coach Oliver Purnell said. "It was important that we got some experience playing against a zone because we'll see it a lot this year. We made a couple of threes early and got a little bit three-happy.
"So we had a rule in the second half that the ball had to touch the post. After that, we started to shoot it a little better. I was happy with our pressure. There were a lot of steals and a lot of turnovers."
Andre Young played 20 minutes off the bench, filling up the stat sheet with eight points, four steals and five assists.
Trevor Booker played a team-high 23 minutes. He scored 11 points and grabbed eight rebounds.
David Potter finished with eight points. He, Young and Narcisse finished with a pair of 3s.
Devin Booker scored eight points and had five rebounds in 13 minutes. Milton Jennings scored five points, had three rebounds and three steals.
Clemson finished 14 of 30 from 3-point land, shot 43 percent from the field and forced 26 turnovers (19 steals). The Tigers out rebounded the Blue Hose 40-26.
Presbyterian freshman guard Zach Faircloth finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds--both game-highs.
The Blue Hose, who shot under 36 percent, had trouble simply getting it past midcourt against Clemson's pressure and had 15 of their 27 turnovers in the first half.
Things will probably get worse for Presbyterian next month. The Blue Hose face an 18-day stretch of December road games at North Carolina, Ohio State, Dayton, Marquette and Florida.
Clemson will next face Liberty, on the road, next Tuesday at 10 AM.
