Clemson defeats Savannah State 81-49 in Littlejohn

The OP Stat of the Game: Oliver Purnell, 100 Clemson Victories!!!

Booker and Oglesby lead the Clemson Tigers in scoring at 17 a piece, followed by surprise offensive force Raymond Sykes with 14. Grant and Stitt each scored 8, while, KC Rivers had a notably of night with only 6. points. Nonetheless, the Tigers won- the correct ones.

Still, 61.9 FT % on 13 of 21. Savannah State, on the other hand, shot 71.43% on 5-7 FT. Based upon percentages alone, we lost this match up. However, the Clemson Tigers were able to get to the FT line three times as much as the SS Tigers. Of the attempts at the line, 10 were by Booker, who made 7 of the 10. Sykes, Oglesby, Grant, Stitt, and Yanutola all missed one. This changes the perception of the FT% at least a little.

Elsewher, Bobo made his 'electric' debut with 4 points from two dunks, but also had two blocks, two rebounds, and one turnover in his 9 minutes of NCAA collegiate action- in which Catalin Baicu nearly doubled the amount of time he played 'professionally' in his native Romania. Don't trust Willy with your money next time Bobo, and you probably won't have to sit out five games.

Per the Oglesby front, he returned to form nicely and shot 66.7% from 3pt. range on 4-6 shooting and 17 total points.

The Tigers needed this breather after the close game in Charlotte. And while we didn't perform consistently throughout, in the end, the Tigers followed through and defeated the younger, less-talented Savannah State Tigers, whose only bright spot was Anthony Jones' 20 points.

Now, the Clemson Tigers have to look forward to the Blue Hose of PC Friday night @ 7:30. So when you're fat with Turkey and looking forward to a Saturday meal of chicken, you can relax and enjoy another Tiger Basketball game. OP will start working toward his 2nd hundred in the win Clemson win column then.

Go Tigers!
