Clemson rolled to a 75-48 victory over the Division II Anderson Trojans in an exhibition contest at Littlejohn Coliseum, Wednesday. Aamir Sims led the Tigers in both scoring and rebounding with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Sims and company dominated the contest from start to finish but did struggle from behind the arc early, knocking down just 2 of 12 3-point attempts in the first half. Tevin Mack, a Columbia native that has transferred in from Alabama, had no such issues finding the range and hit 2 of his 3 long-range shots. Mack scored 14 points on 5 of 8 shooting in his first action at Littlejohn Coliseum.
Curran Scott, a transfer guard from Tulsa, scored 15 points on 6 of 8 shooting. Hunter Tyson was the fourth Tiger in double figures with 11 points. Like Mack, Tyson found his stroke and dropped all three of his 3-point attempts. Overall, Clemson hit 60.5% of its shots inside the arc, but just 26% of its 3-pointers. Defensively, Clemson locked up Anderson early, limiting the Trojans to 21% shooting in the first half and 34% for the game.
Clemson will get an early test, opening the season in ACC play at 7 p.m., Nov. 5th against Virginia Tech.
