Clemson Throttles SC State

The OP Stat of the Game: 14-19 FT, an amazing 73.68%

The Tigers also had 22 assists.

Even Bobo got to get in on the action this weekend, on 1-8 shooting and 2-2FT. The game wasn't ever really close. The Bulldogs were outclassed and overmatched from the beginning. Most everyone on the team was able to get some minutes.

Still, a striking absence from today was Raymond Syke's game. He started the season gangbusters, but now has brought back "tiny wine" hands Sykes, circa 2006-2008.
Sykes scores 2 of his dominating 4 pts to go along with his 2 rebounds, his 1 assist, his 2 blocked shots and three personal fouls, awesome. (from the Greenville News)

Also notably absent from Saturday's game was a healthy crowd.

View a photo slideshow of the game from the Greenville News to see where you could have been, or weren't, sitting. Yes, school is out and exams are over, but seriously?

Now, the Tigers are 10-0, going for 11-0 Tuesday night at 7:30 in Littlejohn against North Florida. That will be their last gimme-if any game can be called such-game of the season.

The difficulty of the remaining games increases exponentially, as the Tigers follow the UNF game with a short hop down to Coral Gables to take on Jack McClinton and Miami on 1/21.

That brief, early ACC game is followed by South Carolina, 12/30, East Carolina, 1/3 and Alabama, 1/6, respectively before the full-on ACC Season begins against NCSU on 1/10

It will not get any easier for the Tigers as the season unfolds.

Go Tigers!
