Box Score

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Harold Jamison scored a career-high 25 points on 10-for-12 shooting to lead No. 21 Clemson to an 80-72 victory over North Carolina State on Tuesday night.

Terrell McIntyre added 22 points for the Tigers (12-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who ended a two-game losing streak.

Clemson led by as many as 19 points in the second half before N.C. State (10-4, 1-2) used a 16-4 run to pull within 69-62 with less than 4:30 to play. Justin Gainey scored nine of his 16 points in the run.

The Tigers responded with a 7-2 run over the next two minutes to put the game away. Tom Wideman had a layup, Jamison tipped in a miss, and McIntyre hit his fourth 3-pointer of the night in the run.

Wideman ended up with 11 points and 12 rebounds, the first double-double of his career. Jamison grabbed eight rebounds.

Jamison, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound senior, started the game with two of his six dunks and Clemson never trailed.

The Wolfpack pulled to within nine on Adam Harrington’s layup. McIntyre then hit two 3-pointers and went in for a coast-to-coast layup in an 8-2 run in the final minute to give the Tigers a 43-28 halftime lead.

Clemson’s Johnny Miller scored just five points but had a career-high 10 assists, just one less than the entire N.C. State team.

Kenny Inge led the Wolfpack with 17 points. The Tigers held N.C. State’s leading scorer Harrington (14.8 points) to just seven points on 2-for-8 shooting, including 0-for-5 on 3-pointers.
