Clemson Downs The Citadel on the Road, 73-50

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Clemson used a stingy defense and held The Citadel to 30.2 percent field goal shooting Wednesday in a road win over the Bulldogs, 73-50. The game was the first played between the two schools at McAlister Field House since the 1989-90 season. The win was the Tigers' 14th straight in the series, dating to 1978-79.

The Bulldogs didn't fare well offensively against Clemson's relentless defense. After shooting 8-for-26 in the first half, the Bulldogs shot even worse in the second half, 11-of-37. Clemson, conversely, shot 53.7 percent for the game, making 29-for-54 from the field. The Tigers were 4-of-9 from three and 11-for-22 from the free throw line. Clemson won the rebound battle, 40-38, and added 11 blocked shots and six steals.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest was held in check early, but 20-point games from both sophomore Travis McKie and junior C.J. Harris provided enough firepower to take down Georgia Southern, 81-72, at Lawrence Joel Coliseum on Wednesday evening.
