The Clemson Tigers defeated Texas Southern, 84-77, Friday afternoon after another big effort from Elijah Thomas.
The former Texas A&M Aggie showed out with a double-double effort of 26 points and 16 rebounds.
Gabe DeVoe shook off a poor shooting performance against Temple by pouring in 21 points, converting all five of his three-point attempts.
Shelton Mitchell played sparingly in the second half after suffering a first-half upper body injury which Head Coach Brad Brownell says the team will continue to monitor.
The Tigers (5-1) return to action a week from Sunday when they play UNC Asheville at Littlejohn Coliseum.
