Clemson tops Gamecocks in dominating fashion

Behind a career-high 25 points from Marcquise Reed combined with the least amount of points surrendered to South Carolina in 46 years, Clemson University men’s basketball dominated South Carolina and beat them handedly 64-48 on Tuesday evening.

Clemson is 38-2 all-time under head coach Brad Brownell when allowing less than 50 points.

Reed’s 25 points led the Tigers (10-1), while Gabe DeVoe and Shelton Mitchell also finished in double-figures with 12 points and 10 points, respectively. Reed hit five threes – tying a career-high – and hit eight free throws on the night.

More impressively, the reigning ACC Player of the Week grabbed six rebounds, dished out three assists and blocked three shots.

Clemson set the tone early in a low scoring defensive battle, maintaining a steady advantage throughout much of the first half, which culminated in a five-point lead after the first stanza.

Out of the break, the Tigers began to flex its defensive muscle against the Gamecocks (8-3) getting out to a 14-6 run to open up a 45-32 lead at the 9:49 mark of the second half.

The Tigers pushed its lead to a game-high 19 points on a Reed 3-pointer that contributed to a 12-4 run to open up a 64-43 lead, eventually finishing off the Gamecocks by 18 at the final buzzer.

The 18-point victory stands as the largest scoring margin for Clemson over South Carolina since a 74-53 win on Dec. 2, 2006.
