Clemson picked up its second win in a row with an 81-68 victory over Colgate at Littlejohn Coliseum, Sunday. Senior guard Tevin Mack led the Tigers with 17 points on 7 of 11 shooting. Mack also paced Clemson with nine rebounds and five steals. Freshman guard Al-Amir Dawes helped shoulder the scoring load with 16 points on 6 of 12 shooting. Fellow freshman guard Chase Hunter and junior forward Aamir Simms also scored in double-figures with 10 points and 12 points, respectively.
Clemson (2-1) didn’t shoot exceptionally well from behind the 3-point arc (30%), but had their way with Colgate inside, scoring 46 of its 81 points in the paint. The Tigers also tallied 15 points on fast break opportunities. Mack knocked down all three of his 3-point attempts in the first half to help Clemson build a 38-30 lead. Clemson has yet to allow any of its three opponents to eclipse 70 points.
The Tigers will next be in action Sunday, Nov. 17th, when they play host to Detroit Mercy at Littlejohn Coliseum.
