CLEMSON, S.C. (AP)--K.C. Rivers scored 19 points and Trevor Booker added 18 to lead Clemson to a 90-63 victory over South Carolina State on Saturday.
The win marked the fourth straight season the Tigers (10-0)won their first 10 games.
Clemson led by 24 points at halftime and by many as 30 in the second half.
ATLANTA, GA (AP) - Toney Douglas scored 23 points and Florida State withstood a furious Georgia State comeback Saturday, holding on for a 62-57 win.
Florida State (9-1) led by 19 points midway through the second half, only to lose the momentum and allow Georgia State (3-6) to fight its way back into the game. Georgia State's Leonard Mendez missed a 3-pointer with five seconds left that would have tied the game at 60.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP)--Tyler Hansbrough had 26 points and nine rebounds to help top-ranked North Carolina beat Oral Roberts 100-84 on Saturday.
Deon Thompson added 22 points for the Tar Heels (9-0), who had no trouble in their first game following a 10-day exam break. North Carolina shot 59 percent to take a 20-point halftime lead and was never seriously threatened from there in yet another lopsided victory to start the season.
RALEIGH, N.C. - Even with two beginning-of-the-season starters out of action and Brandon Costner suffering a gash above his right eye, NC State had no shortage of weapons Saturday afternoon to defeat out-manned Winston-Salem State at Reynolds Coliseum.
With junior point guard Farnold Degand in street clothes for disciplinary reasons and senior small forward Courtney Fells on the bench in his warm-up suit with a gimpy ankle, the Wolfpack (5-1) easily out-gunned the Rams, 74-46, in front of 5,384 spectators.
