Aamir Simms led Clemson’s attack on both ends of the floor as the Tigers cruised past Maryland 67-51, Wednesday, as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. Simms scored 12 of his 16 points in the first half while picking up a block and two steals. Clemson held a commanding 38-15 lead at the break on the strength of Simms’ play and suffocating defense. In the first half, the Tigers limited the Terrapins to 26% shooting while forcing 10 Maryland turnovers.

Head coach Brad Brownell praised his team’s first-half execution, “That first half was about as well as we can play. I thought we did some unbelievable things in terms of following our game plan …. I couldn’t be prouder of how our guys competed.”

The Terps mounted a second half run but could get no closer than 12 the rest of the way. Al-Amir Dawes (12), John Newman, III (12) and Nick Honor (10) joined Simms in double figures. Clemson moves to 4-0 on the season with a neutral site game against Alabama in Atlanta coming up Saturday at 7:30.
