HONOLULU (AP) – Akin Akingbala scored 13 points and Vernon Hamilton added 11 as Clemson routed Indiana State 83-57 in the consolation round of the Rainbow Classic on Wednesday afternoon.

Less than 24 hours after cutting a 20-point halftime deficit to five against Southern California, the Sycamores (5-5) could not overcome another 20-point halftime deficit against the Tigers (8-2).

Clemson’s defense forced the Sycamores into an 18-of-59 (30 percent) shooting performance from the field and 22 turnovers.

The Clemson post players also dominated the inside against the smaller Sycamores, especially after Indiana State post player Jerod Adler picked up his fourth foul less than two minutes into the second half.

Mick Yelovich came off the bench to score 15 points to lead the Sycamores, while David Moss added 12.

The Tigers went on a 12-0 run midway through the first half to take control of the game and cruised to a 44-24 halftime lead.

Clemson faces Georgetown in the tournament’s fifth-place game Thursday, while Indiana State will meet Long Beach State in the seventh-place match.
