Clemson defeats PC 79-58, OP gets win 101

OP wins 100 at Clemson
OP is presented with a commemorative game ball following the Savannah State Win. (from the Greenville News)

The OP Stat of the Game: Booker, 25 pts, 9 rbs, 2 stls, 1 block, 11-16 FG, 3-3 FT.

The game becomes laughable, as the Tigers defeat PC 79-58. (from the Greenville News)

The Tigers and Booker established the inside game early and continued it throughout. Booker, mohawk still visible, was helped by Sykes with 10 pts. It shouldn't be a surprise given his performance this year; however, after three years of Sykes looking confused and out-of-place of on offense, that fact he is becoming a solid inside presence this year, still surprises.

Per Bobo, he still hasn't had much playing time, as he only played 4 minutes yesterday. In was became OP's 101st win.

The Blue Hose almost came up with an answer to the Tigers inside/outside game, at the end of the first half when they pulled to 36-32. That is as close as the Blue Hose came. Booker turned it on and the defense turned it up. It wasn't a great game in terms of style points, but it was enough.

“We didn’t play great, but we played well in spurts,” Purnell said. “And we were able to put a lot of pressure on them with our size advantage.”
