CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson University men’s basketball moved to 6-0 in ACC play after a 83-70 win over Louisville on Wednesday night.
The Tigers (14-3, 6-0 ACC) were once again led by Hunter Tyson (Monroe, N.C./Piedmont) as he recorded fifth straight double-double, tallying 28 points and 11 rebounds. It’s also his sixth consecutive double-double this season in league play.
Chase Hunter (Atlanta, Ga./Westlake) added 13 points, seven rebounds and four assists to aid Tyson, while both PJ Hall (Spartanburg, S.C./Dorman) and Brevin Galloway (Anderson, S.C./Seneca) scored 10 points each.
Clemson got off to a sluggish start against the Cardinals (2-15, 0-6 ACC) and trailed by nine with 12:40 left in the opening stanza. An RJ Godfrey (Suwanee, Ga./North Gwinnett) layup sparked an 18-2 run, giving the Tigers control of the game.
The Tigers built on a 12-point halftime advantage, leading by as many as 17 in the second half before coasting to a 13-point victory.
Thirty-eight of Clemson’s points came in the paint, while the Tigers shot 52.8 percent overall from the field.
