McDaniels made all four of his three-point attempts to score a career high 17 points. Adonis Flier also had ten points. Devin Booker led the team on the boards with ten rebounds while chipping in six points.
Clemson opened the game on a 15-3 run and never looked back. They hit their first six three-point attempts. As hot as the Tigers were, the Miners were equally cold. They finished the game shooting just 37 percent from the floor. They were able to close within 12 at halftime, but that was as close as they would get.
With the win Clemson improves to 3-1 this season.
