Men's Basketball ACCtion: Tuesday, January 15
Jan. 16, 2013
CLEMSON, SC - Clemson held its second straight ACC opponent to 44 points in a 60-44 victory over Wake Forest on Tuesday at Littlejohn Coliseum. The Tigers held the Demon Deacons to 24.6 percent shooting, the second lowest field goal percentage by an ACC opponent against Clemson. Ironically enough, the lowest percentage against the Tigers by a league opponent was also by Wake Forest, who shot just 20 percent in a game in Winston-Salem on Jan. 4, 1964.
The win improved Brad Brownell's team to 10-6 on the season and 2-2 in the ACC. Wake fell to 9-7 overall, also 2-2 in conference play. Clemson is now 19-1 in Brownell's tenure when holding the opposition to 50 points or less.
K.J. McDaniels led Clemson in a number of statistical areas. The 6-foot-6 sophomore scored a game-high 14 points and grabbed a career-best nine rebounds. He also had seven blocked shots, another career-high, in an outstanding all-around performance. His seven blocks were the most by a Tiger since Jerai Grant had eight versus East Carolina in 2010.
